Boston’s Bandulu Collaborates With Nike On The Kyrie 5

Kyrie Irving‘s Nike Kyrie 5 is one of the most interesting signature basketball shoes on the market today thanks to its eye-catching look/cornucopia of special makeups, and now Boston-based brand Bandulu has been tapped to work their magic on the Celtics point guard’s latest model. Known for upcycling vintage apparel from Nike and other brands to create brand-new handmade pieces that have been spotted on the likes of Drake, Bandulu has opted to apply their DIY ethos liberally to the Kyrie 5. The sail base is covered in abstract embroidered “paint splatters” that drip down the midfoot to partially cover the lateral side’s Swoosh, and more striking splotches then appear on the toebox, which also features an abated branded hit, similar in size to what you’d see on a vintage Nike tee. An embroidered Swoosh and further paint-style details then grace the medial side. There’s a wealth of hand-scrawled accents here as well, with “Kyrie Irving” embroidered on the Venus flytrap lace covers, while “Nike Basketball” appears on the left shoe’s heel and “Bandulu Street Couture” spans the right shoe’s heel. A soft olive green tongue with a co-branded tag adds a little more style, while the look is completed by a sail midsole and vibrant red outsole. A perfect encapsulation of Bandulu’s ultra-unique ethos in a piece of footwear, you can check out these new Nike shoes below, and be sure to stay tuned for more info on a release date as it’s available.
