Kyrie Irving’s signature Nike line excels at threading narratives through performance models. Standouts have been the Kyrie 2 ‘Australia’, which paid respect to his birthplace, and the ‘Lightning’ Kyrie 3, coloured for the star's favourite chill-multiplying musical.
This drop continues the tradition with a colourway composed for Irving’s go-to meal: ever-poetic mac and cheese. While a yellow textured upper references the squiggly dish, ‘Game Royal’ accents are't so easily explained – maybe he's more of mac and blue cheese kind of guy? The Swoosh echoes silverware, and the uppers sit on a midsole as white as porcelain plates. Illustrated macaroni splattered across the insoles hit the theme home.
Putting your foot in your mouth is usually frowned upon, but this colourway will tempt you. The Nike Kyrie 3 ‘Mac and Cheese’ will be available on July 14 from Nike online.
