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.
