Although Kyrie Irving’s season with the Boston Celtics ended earlier than expected, colorways for the Nike Kyrie 5 are still coming.
Building off of the success and playability of the Nike Kyrie 4, Nike decided to one-up themselves with the Kyrie 5 and so far, they have done so. The staff here at WearTesters agree that the Kyrie 5 is one of Irving’s better signature models to use on-court.
Unlike previous iterations in the line, the Kyrie 5 utilizes a Flytrap system on top of the black engineered mesh upper for containment. Underfoot, there is Nike’s new Air Zoom Turbo in the forefoot with a Phylon midsole. Lastly, there are hits of gold on the Swoosh and Irving’s logo on the tongue for a nice contrast.

The Nike Kyrie 5 ‘Black/Metallic Gold/White’ is releasing on June 16. It will be available in a range of sizes so expect the price to be anywhere between $110-130. They will be available at retailers such as Eastbay and Finish Line on release date.
