New York City’s infectious energy and fast pace connect the city’s five boroughs – providing a perfect backdrop for this month’s festivities. Nike Basketball drew inspiration from the distinctive architecture that dots New York’s skyline for the new collection featuring the KOBE X, KD 7, KYRIE 1 and LEBRON 12.

Key elements of the city’s iconic architecture inspire the signature shoes of Nike Basketball’s premier signature stars, including Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James.

Woven together with a clean, modern color palette and graphics, the shoes pull inspiration from technological advancements fitting each star athlete.

The KOBE X is an expression of that same sentiment, bringing Nike’s best inventions together in one future-forward shoe.

KYRIE 1 using New York City’s legendary City Hall Subway Station as its muse

 

A city in constant motion, New York completed its legendary City Hall Subway Station in 1904. It was one of the world’s first subway systems known for its speed and efficiency traversing the boroughs. The subway station’s beauty turned heads with its unique tile design across strong, structured arches until its closure in 1945.

Kyrie Irving represents a new-age speed with an old-school flair to his game. Don’t blink because he’ll pass his opponents in a flash just like the “ghost” City Hall Subway Station. The City Hall Subway stop remains intact, but flies by in an instant outside the windows of the 6 Train. The KYRIE 1 is built for Irving’s game-changing speed and deception with its 360-degree dynamic traction, Zoom Air and lockdown fit.

  1. the brons remind me of the zoom kobe 4 home del sol colorway… just replace the hints of green and blue with yellow and a solid black outsold. its also the grid pattern on the hyperposite that does it.

  2. I’ve read comments of those on IG who have the Kobe X ASG already that the material is ripping with little play time.

    I’m so glad to be saving some money for a change.

  3. the unisphere actually is trashed up, and needs repair. idk what nike is tryin to do with kobes this year.
