The second Kyrie Irving signature sneaker has launched, with the first colorway in the Nike Kyrie 2 ‘Effect’ available now at select retailers.
The inspiration behind the colorway is something out of science fiction, with the ‘Kyrie effect’ mathematical and scientific formulas strolling through the mind when Kyrie goes up for an improbable layup. The pattern on the heel and mid-foot strap represents this effect, similar to what you’d see from movies like Limitless, Lucy, or even the Hangover when Alan counts cards.
