Although Kyrie Irving has been forced to sit sidelines while his Boston Celtics squad does battle with the Philadelphia 76ers in their second-round playoff series, the all-star point guard got to see his young rook Jayson Tatum hit the floor in his Nike Kyrie 4 “Wheaties.” First teased late last week by the man himself via Instagram, Tatum proudly rocked the kicks in Game 3 of the series — providing us a better look at the shoes.
The sneakers take on a color medley that has long become synonymous with the iconic Wheaties box. A bright orange hue dominates the upper with white landing on the midsole, tongue branding, and side Swoosh, while traces of blue appear on the collar lining. Sitting below, we see a mix of brown and white, which playfully portrays a bowl of cereal and milk. There is no word yet if these special Nike PE’s will see a general release.
In case you missed it, Nike dresses the Air Max 270 in varying shades of brown.
