words & list // Pierce Simpson:
With the Duke Blue Devils competing for yet another National Championship tonight against the Wisconsin Badgers, it seems as though their iconic program continues to ascend to higher heights. With a bevy of professional stars across many leagues, Coach K and the Blue Devils seem poised to continue their excellence for the foreseeable future. However, with tonight’s matchup featuring a variety of sneakerheads such as Quinn Cook and Jahlil Okafor, we thought it’d be best to present the All-Time Five for the Duke Blue Devils.
To be honest, the list may shock you. However, to see for yourself, flip through the pages below to get a detailed account of the all-time sneaker team for the Duke Blue Devils.
Receiving your own signature sneaker significantly shifts the focus in your favor and this couldn’t have been anymore evident than with former Duke guard Kyrie Irving. Only suiting up in a handful full of games for the Blue Devils back during the 2010-2011 campaign, Irving would sport the Nike Zoom Soldier V before becoming the number one pick in the NBA Draft that summer.
Since his inception within the Association, Kyrie has ascended to become one of the elite guards within the game as this season he has provided multiple 50-point performances. In addition, as mentioned previously, Irving debuted his very own signature line with Nike as they unveiled the Nike Kyrie 1.
