Nick Kyrgios' Nike Zoom Vapor X 'Kyrie 5' is a Clean Winner

Date: January 09 2019

Tennis star Nick Kyrgios has tapped into his love of basketball to debut the latest Nike Zoom Vapor X. Inspired by fellow Aussie-born superstar Kyrie Irving, the sneaker’s ‘Kyrie 5’ colourway is an unmistakable ode to the new signature basketball model.

The hybrid sneaker pairs the Kyrie 5’s upper with the outsole of the Vapor X, creating an eye-catching performance offering that transcends court sports. A NikeCourt logo on the tongue features Irving’s signature logo, while the ‘Hot Lava’ accents are no doubt inspired by the classic Air Tech Challenge II.

It’s not the first time that Team Swoosh have dabbled with basketball/tennis crossovers, having released the Zoom Vapor Tour AJ3 back 2014. It’ll be interesting to see how Team Swoosh approach things now that they’ve jumped off the Fed-Express, but we expect them to serve up more aces in the coming months.

The Nike Zoom Vapor X ‘Kyrie 5’ releases on January 14 via and select retailers.
