Nike Kyrie 6
The Nike Kyrie 6 is the sixth signature basketball shoe for NBA superstar Kyrie Irving. The shoe is crafted by senior Nike Basketball designer Ben Nethongkome and aims to create a perfect blend between on-court functionality and comfort with an aesthetic spirit related to the Brooklyn point guard's love for street culture and nostalgia for retro hoop sneakers. In regards to its design, it is a mid-profile silhouette that dons a sleek composition meant to be look good both on and off the floor. Its most stand-out features include its lockdown mid-foot strap that is decorated with the all-seeing eye, as well as its carved-out heel counter which is molded in an artistic way that forms the palm-shaped Hamsa symbol. Infused into its cushioning unit is an enlarged Zoom bag in the forefoot that provides a responsive ride for players who have tendencies of making quick changes in direction.
