Kyrie Irving’s first signature shoe, the Nike Kyrie 1 has been officially unveiled. The Nike Kyrie 1 Dream colorway will be the first pair to debut that is inspired by the dreams Irving used to have of waking up on Christmas morning and lacing up for a game professionally – a dream that will come true when Cleveland plays in Miami on Christmas day.
Nike Kyrie 1 Dream Colorway Details
The shoe features a Black-based upper with geometric, colorful objects specific to Irving’s life journey, including stars from the Australian flag, a skateboard, his jersey number and a brass musical instrument.
Some other details of the Kyrie 1 include:
- The new Kyrie Irving logo on the shoe’s tongue represents his inner strength and hunger to learn.
- Hand-written details in Irving’s penmanship: #2 on the upper heel along with his personal signature on the inside of the tongue.
- Jagged pattern on the wrapped traction near the toe and heel counter with architectural angles are both inspired by the Sydney Opera House in Irving’s homeland of Australia.
- The acronym “JBY” that sits beneath Irving’s new logo on the outsole stands for “Just Be You,” a motto that Irving hopes inspires kids as they establish their own unique identities.

Look for the Nike Kyrie 1 Dream colorway to release in North America on December 23rd, 2014 in adult and kids sizes at select Nike Basketball retailers, including Nike.com. Along with the shoe, special KYRIE 1 T-shirts, hats and socks will also be available.
