LeBron can keep his Sprite – for fellow teammate Kyrie Irving, it's all about the Dew! With the Cavs on the road to potential back-to-back Finals win, Mountain Dew and Nike have collaborated to produced a special 'K.A.R.E. Kit', including an exclusive make-up of the Kyrie 3 in the soda's signature colours.
Short for 'Kyrie’s Ankle Recovery Equipment', this K.A.R.E. has been made with Kyrie's ankle-breaking reputation in mind – coming packaged with a first aid kit, autographed X-ray of a broken ankle and iPad, among other items. Can't say we'd mind a broken ankle too much if this was the treatment!
Only 32 Mountain Dew x Nike Kyrie 3 'K.A.R.E.' kits have been produced and unfortunately, none are destined for retail.
Some will be offered up through giveaways and you can be sure a few will find their way into the hands of the usual influencers – however we like to think that the rest have been set aside for the poor souls that fall victim to a vicious Kyrie crossover in the playoffs.
