We have confirmation of the Nike Kyrie 6 release date and price. The Nike Kyrie 6 has already been the subject of a fair amount of leaks. Because of those leaks, the design of the shoe is well known and shouldn’t be a surprise to any of our loyal readers. We covered it here, here, here, here, here, and here.
Alongside the confirmed Kyrie 6 release date and price we’ve also received some high quality official images, tech breakdowns, and a bit of background information.
Designer Benjamin Nethongkome is again back with Irving in a continuous effort to combine the performance needs of Uncle Drew with his unique personality and values. Built to support his dynamic play style, the Kyrie 6 design meets functional needs of the perennial All-Star and one-time NBA Champion, along with “inspiration from past Nike shoes” as referenced by Irving himself.
According to Nike, tech features of the Nike Kyrie 6 include a return of the same flexible forefoot Zoom Turbo unit found in the Kyrie 5, a new midfoot strap for support, an evolution of the line’s 360 traction, and a new last that puts Kyrie 5mm closer to the court. The main build of the Kyrie 6 will also feature a mix of ballistic mesh and premium leather materials to allow for both on-court support and off-court appeal.
