Kyrie Irving and Nike Basketball are embarking on their first official Asia World Tour together, starting in Japan. Kyrie’s just 25-years-old and yet his journey is just starting. He’s already an NBA Champion, All-Star, Olympic Gold Medalist and more and his game has been watched the world over for his incredible handles and infamous ability to hit clutch shots when his team needs it most.
Irving plans to immerse himself in Asian basketball culture with stops in Tokyo, Japan; Taipei, Taiwan; and Beijing, China throughout the end of this month. This tour could be seen as Kyrie taking the Nike torch from Kobe, one of his mentors. His highlight reel-heavy play is appealing to fans the world over and his Nike Kyrie 3 continues to be one of the most popular basketball models on the market. Nike also plans to update the tour with entries over on Nike News daily.
Check out more recap photos from the beginning of the tour below and stay tuned for more updates to come right here on Sneaker News. In related content, be sure to check out all of the Kyrie 3 options headed to retailers this weekend.
