Kyrie Irving is one of the top stars in the NBA and here are the best 5 Nike shoes that have been put out in the market
Kyrie Irving might be one of the best players to have graced the game of basketball in recent years, and his Nike shoes are some of the best in the market.
The 27-year-old will be remembered for his exploits with the Cleveland Cavaliers as he helped LeBron James, and the rest of the team, to an NBA title.
They beat the Golden State Warriors and were 3-1 down in the finals. However, Irving did his bit for the team and ended up winning the title.
He then made a big move to the Boston Celtics but things didn’t work for him there. After spending a couple of years with them, he took another big risk by signing with the Brooklyn Nets.
This was important as he joined Kevin Durant at Brooklyn, but the former Warriors star was ruled out of the season after picking up a major injury in 2019.
Irving has also won several medals and titles while playing for the United States. The American also has a tie-up with Nike to produce special sneakers, which are one of the best selling, after James’ collection.
The sneaker market is huge, especially in the US, and Irving has some of the best shoes and designs.
Irving has also tied up with Friends and Spongebob Squarepants for limited edition sneakers too.
Most of these shoes aren’t for show though, and here are some of the best he has.
The 5 best Nike shoes from Kyrie Irving
#5 Kyrie 3 – $104.99
This Kyrie shoe features a lot of personal touches and includes Roman numerals VIII and XIII to highlight the month and date of his mother’s birthday.
One feature of this shoe is the traction pods which provide better and quicker movement, something that Irving is known for.
#4 Kyrie 4 – $107.99
The Kyrie 4 doesn’t have a lot of differences from its previous iteration, but this allowed the Nets star to collaborate more for exclusives.
There was the Uncle Drew inspired design and one which saw him collaborate with a cereal company that sold out.
#3 Kyrie 1 – $87.99
This was the start of it all for Kyrie as it proved he had become a big star. There aren’t many players that get their own signature line, but the Kyrie 1 took the Nets star to the next level.
Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant had another competitor in Kyrie. This also saw a more affordable price point for some youngsters who were keen to take up professional kicks.
#2 Kyrie 5 – $118.99
This is one of the newest Kyrie shoes around, but it has the most collaborations too.
The Kyrie 5 also has a ton of attributes to make it a better performing shoe on the court. The Flywire locks, Nike’s Air Zoom Turbo unit and traction systems make it a top choice.
Irving also had a tie-up with tennis star Nick Kyrgios and there have been fantastic collaborations with musicians also.
#1 Kyrie 2 – $97.99
The Kyrie 2 might not have too many collaborations to talk about, but it is one of the best basketball sneakers ever made.
The sneaker also has a lot of history behind it as Irving wore it for one of his greatest shots. That took place in the 2016 NBA Finals in the seventh game, which Cleveland won to defeat the Warriors.
Many other top sneaker lines didn’t get a lot of love when the second one came out, but that is not the case with the Kyrie 2.
