Kyrie Irving’s Best Nike Kyrie 5s This Season

The Nike Kyrie 5 is the latest chapter for the All-Star’s signature line as it elevates the series to new heights due in part to some major adjustments that cater to Irving’s mesmerizing game filled with crossovers and insane ball handling ability.

The shoe features a Zoom Air bag unlike anything before with a 240% increase from the Nike Kyrie 1. Although the signature line is relatively young, the strides that Kyrie’s game and his signature have made are monumental to say the least.
