For 30 years, the Nike Air Force 1 has taken shape in multiple iterations, collaborations and customizations, and helped define an entire culture of enthusiasts. Now the pinnacle of street, sport and culture will be badged for professional basketball star Kyrie Irving.
Designed Exclusively for Kyrie
The two colorways feature a clear TPU in the vamp and quarter panel to allow for visibility. Reflective paneling is paired with the clear TPU in the Game Royal/White colorway, while the University Red/Black remains more traditional, mixed with a classic leather upper. Kyrie’s signature and “K” design adorn the upper and his No. 2 is on the insole.
In addition, the shoe comes with a custom Nike Elite sock in University Red and Game Royal featuring Irving's personal mantra — “Hungry & Humble” — a motivational phrase he has stood by since he was a kid.
The Kyrie Air Force 1s will be available in stores and online Nov. 22 in limited quantities.
