For a handful of seasons now, Kyrie Irving has made it his personal mission to keep Suzanne “Sue” Brigit Bird fresh. In addition to supporting the Seattle Storm guard from the sidelines from time to time, the Brooklyn Nets athlete has released special editions of his signature sneaker specifically for her.
The latest in the series of homages to the WNBA great arrives on the Nike Kyrie Infinity (unofficially the Nike Kyrie 8; the “8” resembles the infinity symbol). Reminiscent of the Storm’s team colors, the latest take on Irving’s eighth mainline footwear proposition indulges in an off-white base and shades of green across its mostly synthetic leather upper. Support paneling around and across the tongue join inner-lining and detailing at the heel for the most vibrant hit of green. Underfoot, the familiar Nike Kyrie sole unit opts for more light green, but pairs it with a touch of gold. The sneaker’s most iconic detail, however, is unquestionably the “#KEEPSUEFRESH!” message on the top of the left shoe’s tongue.
Enjoy official images of the pair here below, and anticipate a Nike SNKRS launch soon.
