Nike Kyrie Infinity “Smoke And Mirrors” CZ0204-102
The Nike Kyrie Infinity boasts a healthy release slate 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 used ‘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 fool defenders with his masterful grips and quick pivoting, the next version covers most of the performance-informed mesh and synthetic leather found on the upper in a “clear” hue. Textile construction at the toe cap, along with elastic bands that span the tongue, indulge in a contrasting light blue that flirts with the ever-popular “University Blue” that helped NIKE, Inc. reach new audiences over the past five years. Tongue tops, profile branding, and accompanying accents diverge dramatically in an “Iron Grey” colorway that helps recreate a smoky aesthetic throughout the outsole. Curiously, the underfoot detailing also opts for a disparate yellow hue that further livens up Irving’s latest basketball shoe.
Enjoy official images of the pair ahead and look forward to a US release Nike.com launch near the end of the NBA season (mid-April).
