Recently, we posted the lineup of basketball shoes that Nike and Jordan Brand created for the 2019 NBA All-Star Game. Here, we get a closer look at the Kyrie Irving’s All-Star sneaker, the ROKIT designed edition of the Nike Kyrie 5.
Growing up both hooping and skating as a kid, Kyrie learned to master his craft at a young age. From the hardwood and blacktop to the plywood and pavement, both skateboarding and basketball share the same DNA. Developed by Nico Guardalabene, Founder/Owner and Bam Barcena, Creative Director/Co-owner and Rionism, Designer/Co-owner of ROKIT DESIGN, the Kyrie 5 x ROKIT celebrates the expressive individuality of skate and hoop culture to showcase the crossover between the two sports and both brands’ role in bridging the gap between the communities.
The sneaker just launched in the States and can be found at shops like Politics or you can get them directly from Nike.com.
