The timing couldn't have been worse. The night before his first AAU championship game, a young Kyrie Irving knocked his head on the floor of a hotel pool. His game status for the next day was in doubt. A few stitches later, Irving took the court with a head bandage. Kyrie led his team to victory despite the injury. With a unique bandage graphic, the kids-only KYRIE 3 "Badge of Honor" pays tribute to the hard knocks all young athletes collect on the road to victory. The shoe is available now on nike.com and select retail stores.
