Kyrie Irving hasn’t played a single game in the 2021-22 NBA season yet, but his Nike Kyrie Infinity (also known as the Kyrie 8) has appeared on hardwood courts across the globe. With recent news of the Brooklyn Nets guard onboard with playing away games, his current signature sneaker has appeared in yet another Kevin Durant-honoring colorway.

Prepped under the “Ky-D” banner, the newly-surfaced style indulges in a multi-color arrangement complete with specific nods to the BK-based teammates. Hits of green and yellow across the shoe couple with graphics of the Seattle Space Needle to harken back to KD’s time as a SuperSonic. “35” and “7” figures are found throughout the basketball shoe, with the most obvious placement arriving via the outsole; these numbers immortalize the two jersey numbers the Washington D.C.-native has worn throughout his professional career. Dozens of other Durant-related “Easter eggs” appear throughout the latest Nike Kyrie, demonstrating Irving’s affection towards and admiration for the near 7-foot tall guard, whom he’s expressed he was in another life.

Enjoy official images of the pair in both Men’s and Grade School sizes ahead, and anticipate a Nike.com launch in the first-half of the new year.
