You didn’t think that a name as big as Kyrie Irving was going to have just one pair of Nike Hyperdunk 2013 player exclusives to choose from on the season did you? Giving us a better sense of his range is this latest preview picture, which shows off three separate sneakers all outfitted with his “KI” logo. Hyperdunk “player exclusives” have made their way to retail in the past (Think Blake Griffin), so is there any chance that some of the shoes shown will be on shelves in the future? Stay tuned for the answer to that question and make sure you check out detailed look at Kyrie Irving’s Nike Hyperdunk 2013 PE over on Sneaker News Select.

Nike Basketball Inside Access: Kyrie Irving

nike basketball inside access kyrie irving Nike Basketball Inside Access: Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving‘s bright future is what we’re all focused on, but in this latest installment of Nike Basketball Inside Access, we’re getting a rare look at Kyrie’s past and the significant events that have directed him down a straight path to NBA stardom. Beginning life in Melbourne, Australia and traveling with his widowed father to West Orange, N.J., Kyrie learned invaluable lessons from his father Drederick, a pro-basketball player in Australia, which led him to garner attention from top universities at the age of 15. After one great year under Coach K at Duke, Kyrie has established himself as a premier point guard in the NBA, with a growing laundry list of accolades supporting his case of becoming a prominent face of the NBA for years to come.

Here on Sneaker News, we’ve discussed the potential of Kyrie being the next signature athlete for Nike Basketball, and our readers seem to agree with that notion; with Kobe Bryant going down with injury and his years as a pro dwindling, Kyrie’s window of opportunity seems to be growing. Check out the Nike Basketball Inside Access video with Kyrie Irving below and let us know what your thoughts are on Kyrie Irving’s future in the NBA and with Nike, and stay tuned for a detailed look at his new Nike logo and Hyperdunk PE.

What Do You Think?: The Next Signature Basketball Athlete

March 28th, 2013 by | 16 comments

sig shoe what do you think What Do You Think?: The Next Signature Basketball Athlete

Take a look at the NBA players that have signature shoes today and it’s clear that being a signature athlete requires the perfect alignment of skill, charisma, sheer location of employment, and a few other things that make a human into a superstar. LeBron, Kobe, Melo, CP3, Wade, and D-Rose all play in major markets where the opportunity for extensive media coverage is all but guaranteed, with Kevin Durant being the one industry anomaly of being a highly successful signature athlete playing in a small-market city; this seems like a healthy list that should hold us down for a few years, but being content only means one thing – ┬áthere is room for more.

The landscape of sneaker brands is unique in that some of these labels have become flexible with who they choose to represent their brands on that “face of the brand” tier.┬áTake up-and-coming Under Armour for example; their lone signature athlete is Brandon Jennings, but with DeAndre Jordan playing in a huge market and his insane dunk placing some added spice to his shoes, the neophytic UA label has experienced some added exposure as the prime “indie” brand. While the responsbility that comes with being a signature athlete is something that can be compromised, Nike, Jordan Brand, adidas, Li-Ning, and Under Armour – the major brands in the basketball category – all have the room to fit in a new guy on the team.

But is it even time to welcome a new name to the sneaker industry? There’s no doubt that player names play a large part in shaping consumer tendencies, and with Kobe Bryant nearing retirement every passing year, LeBron well on his way to signature shoe history for Nike, KD well-ingrained in the Nike’s historical fibers, and D-Rose sitting prettily with a life-time contract, it’s a ripe-enough time for a fresh name to be thrown into the mix. Each brand across the board has a select group of athletes to represent their non-signature models, but is anyone ready to step up? We’ve narrowed down a list of the top candidates that may be worthy of sig-shoe distinction, so check out our list below and chime in with your opinions on this latest installment of What Do You Think?.
