The ANTA KAI 1 “Green Grails” Celebrates Kyrie Irving’s Return To The NBA Finals

It wasn’t even a year and a half ago that Kyrie Irving was persona non grata in the NBA. However, he’s clearly found a permanent home in Dallas as one-half of the dynamic duo for the Mavericks that powered the franchise to its third-ever NBA Finals appearance. Although the outcome was obviously not what they were striving for, Kyrie Irving has proven himself to be one of the game’s best. ANTA is honoring that achievement with the ANTA KAI 1 “Green Grails”, dropping this Saturday, June 22nd.

The colorway is inspired by a jaded artifact passed down from his ancestors; this relic provides protection, focus and balance, which Kyrie himself will be leaning into as he approaches the offseason. One thing is true: Kyrie is bent on bringing the Mavs back to the Finals.

Despite Kyrie’s offensive struggles against the mighty Boston Celtics defense, the lasting image of Kyrie during the 2024 Finals is not of defeat, but of contentment. Irving made sure to be the last Mavericks player off the court, firmly assuring each member of the team and staff before heading into the locker room.

An official release date for the ANTA KAI 1 “Green Grails” is confirmed for June 22nd; the shoes will drop on ANTA.com and the select retailers listed below in our Where To Buy section. These are hardly the last KAI 1s to drop; we still have the KAI 1 Speed dropping later this year.
