Nike Kyrie 8 First Look 2021 release date info
Kyrie Irving hates his next signature shoe, the Nike Kyrie 8. This isn’t speculation – Irving himself said it when he called the upcoming release “trash” in the comments section of a leak. Instagram. He has since relaxed his stance and claims he’s working with Nike to restructure the shoe, but it’s hard to imagine any drastic changes before the start of 21. So from now on we’re left with this current version. of Kyrie 8.
The shoe appears to inherit some inherited Nike Kyrie design language, returning to the Kyrie 6 more than the Kyrie 7. With this, the detached heel is reminiscent of the Air Yeezy 2, which was a not-so-secret inspiration for the shoe. the Kyrie 6. There is also a fluid leather overlay reminiscent of the Air Jordan 10 and Adidas style middle lace tabs. Perhaps a nod to Kyrie’s love for Nike Skateboarding, the tongue looks a bit “chunkier” than the tongue on standard hoop models.

In recent years, the new Kyrie signature shoe launched in November, leaving little time for a redesign unless it is pushed back indefinitely. We will know more in the coming months.
