With the Kyrie 3 ‘Black Ice‘ and ‘Samurai‘ already on feet and on courts (well, at least on IG), it’s time for the third colorway: ‘Hot Punch’. To celebrate the drop, Nike Basketball created a pop-up shop in Manhattan today for an early release. It’s located at 306 Bowery, and the shop will be open through the release tomorrow.
Our own @NYJumpman23 (Stan) was invited to the pop-up yesterday and got some killer footage and photos (gotta stay on that WearTesters IG and Snapchat) and also got to get some run time in the shoe. According to Nike, the multi-dimensional space offers the opportunity to flip through Irving’s favorite records, customize product and, most importantly, take to the court to test his latest signature shoe, the Kyrie 3. All this happens within “The Cut,” a space hidden from street view, which contains a half court perfectly suited to engage in the high-intensity drills that make Irving unstoppable.
Enjoy the photos below, and if they make you want to visit. As always, drop your thoughts below and let us know if you grabbed a pair.
