An integral part of basketball is flying a flag. Teams are known by their colours, home and away options are available, and even footwear has to play by the rules lest they get banned like MJ’s AJ1s. So, amid the restrictions, it’s nice to see a baller throw caution to the wind and go against the grain like this Nike Kyrie 3. The shoes eschew colour by rocking jet black from heel to toe – only deviating from the darkness for a shady marbling that peaks out from the midsole.
The Nike Kyrie 3 in ‘Triple Black’ is set to release on August 5 from select Nike accounts.
