It wasn’t Kyrie Irving, but Uncle Drew that debuted the Nike Kyrie 4.
With the undoubted success of the Kyrie 3, and whether you liked the performance or not, it sold quickly in most colorways so it was a no-brainer that Nike would design and release a fourth version.
With the surprise move to Boston last month, the name “Kyrie” has never been hotter. A new Uncle Drew movie is filming and an All-Star cast including Shaq, CWebb, Lisa Leslie, Reggie Miller, and Nate Robinson, have filled the roles. Thus, it may have been the perfect time to debut the Nike Kyrie 4.
Seen here on Reggie Miller’s Instagram story (@reggiemillertnt), the Kyrie 4 seems to follow the pattern of the series — sidewall traction for grip while driving, low profile cushioning, and mid-top cut just at the ankle. The lacing system and tongue are almost identical to the Kyrie 3. No word on the cushioning, but the smart bet is Zoom in either the heel or forefoot, but not both (like Kyrie’s PEs).
