The Nike Kyrie 1 run continues deep into summer with yet another alluring colorway of Irving’s first signature shoe. The latest is fitting do not only to the bold color scheme, but the story behind its inspiration.
The Nike Kyrie 1 “Dungeon” references Kyrie’s childhood basement gym in which he spent countless hours perfecting his strength and endurance training. Dimly lit by one hanging light bulb, Irving often referred to the basement as a “Dungeon,” a moniker that follows this latest release of his Kyrie 1. Considering Kyrie has a busy summer ahead to get in shape for the upcoming season after injury, thoughts of those grueling workouts in his “Dungeon” may be at the front of his memory.
