Original article posted June 17th, 2024: There’s a Herculean task in front of Kyrie Irving and the Mavericks- in order to lift the Larry O’Brien trophy, they’ll have to do what no other NBA team has ever done and overcome a 3-0 deficit. While #11’s focus has to be entirely fixed on what’s ahead, his sneaker line is looking to the past, invoking the point guard’s New Jersey upbringing for the ANTA KAI 1 “Garden State.”

Painted almost exclusively in “Sage” jade hues, the layout of the ANTA KAI 1 “Garden State” is rather simple, a switch-up in the nascent product line. The toe-box is where you can spot the detail behind this design, however, opting for a translucent material that reveals multiple graphic stripes, extending radially out from the center. Each of them is dressed in graphic floral print, making this edition of the shoe a literal interpretation of the “Garden” state motif rather than an adaptation of some trademark NJ colors.

Importantly, the ANTA KAI 1 “Garden State” has already dropped in China. Stateside release info is still unclear, but following the KAI 1 “Playoffs Energy” launch, ANTA hinted at another in the “next couple weeks;” this “Garden State” edition is a likely candidate.
