The Nike Kyrie Infinity boasts a healthy release roster despite the man behind it not playing many games during the 2021-22 NBA season. For its latest ensemble, Kyrie Irving‘s eighth signature sneaker with the Swoosh has employed “White,” “Iron Grey” and “Light Marine” tones as part of a “Smoke and Mirrors” colorway.
Likely inspired by the Brooklyn Nets guard’s ability to deceive defenders with his masterful handles and quick pivoting, the upcoming release covers most of the performance-informed mesh and synthetic leather found across the upper in a “colorless” hue. Textile construction at the tip of the toe, as well as the elastic bands that stretch across the tongue, indulge in a contrasting light blue that flirts with the ever-popular “University Blue” that’s helped NIKE, Inc. reach new audiences over the last five years. The tops of tongues, profile branding and accompanying accents deviate drastically in an “Iron Grey” color that helps recreate a smokey aesthetic throughout the outsole. Peculiarly enough, details underfoot also opt for a disparate yellow hue that further animates Irving’s latest basketball shoe.
Enjoy official images of the pair ahead, and anticipate a stateside Nike.com launch as the end of the NBA season approaches (mid-April).
