Kyrie Irving reacts to leaked photos of his next signature shoe, the Nike Kyrie 8, calling them trash.
In response to k11kicks on Instagram giving us first leaked photos of the Kyrie 8, Irving gave us his honest opinion on the shoe:
“I have nothing to do with the design or marketing of the upcoming #Kyrie8, IMO these are trash! I have Absolutely nothing to do with them! Nike plans to release it without my okay regardless of what I say, so I apologize in advance to all of my sneaker heads and true supporters of the #KAI11 brand.”
This just goes to show how involved these athletes are with their shoe designs. Related to this, there was a recent video of PJ Tucker revealing the Giannis Immortality “Smoothie” to the Finals MVP whom has never seen the shoe himself.
It’s unknown what Nike will do in response, so stay tuned for more updates as it develops on the Nike Kyrie 8 as well as other upcoming signature shoes.
