Kyrie’s Alter Ego Is Celebrated On The Nike Kyrie 4 ‘Uncle Drew’
Ahead of his first feature film release on June 29, Kyrie Irving and Nike will release a budding iteration of his fourth signature shoe inspired by the upcoming movie.Of course, there would be no Uncle Drew with Irving, but the hooping grandpa still deserves credit for one of the most compelling sports alter-egos we’ve ever been treated to. Dressed in White, this simplistic take on one of the world’s most popular basketball sneakers ushers in a boldly embroidered Blue Swoosh as well as a speckled pattern on its heel that wraps from the lateral side to the medial. Much to the delight of sneakerheads and Uncle Drew fans alike, it is finished off by a gum bottom outsole that creeps up onto the sneaker’s midsole by way of its customary outriggers. Speckled detailing marks the midsole while the summer centric gum outer plays well on the performance basketball shoe.
