Updated December 27th, 2016: The Nike Kyrie 3 “Team Red” releases on January 7th, 2017 for $120.
The Nike Kyrie 3 was finally officially unveiled yesterday after months of anticipation. Kyrie Irving’s third signature model with Nike Basketball has tons of promise too, thanks to a unique outsole construction that focuses on lateral movement with traction pods for quick cuts. The pair will also look great with a pair of jeans off the court too, which is something to get excited about when you see all of the upcoming colorways headed to retailers. The Kyrie 3 “Hot Punch” will release on January 7th for $120 featuring a Team Red upper to match the Cavaliers’ uniforms while Hot Punch takes over the branding duties for a truly standout look.
The strange texture on the side panel and contrast speckling on the midsole make for a vibrant aesthetic, and when grouped with the updated Nike Zoom midsole and lockdown fit thanks to Dynamic Flywire, the Kyrie 3 should be a no-brainer for $120 USD. What do you think of the Kyrie 3 Hot Punch?
