Dubbed the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor X “Kyrie 5,” the collaboration pays tribute to the two Australian athletes: NBA player, Kyrie Irving (born in Melbourne, Australia) and elite tennis player, Nick Kyrgios who both share a passion for basketball.
The amalgamated sneaker features a white, low-cut version of the Kyrie 5‘s knitted uppers paired with the Vapor X’s distinct outsole. Channeling some design cues from the original Kyrie 5, the venus flytrap-inspired overlay secures the lace stay while the tongue tab is adorned with Kyrie’s signature insignia. Neon orange accents on the heel and outsole serve to finish off the look of the hybrid.
Priced at $160 USD, the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor X “Kyrie 5” will be available on 14 January at 10:00 a.m. EST on nike.com and at select retailers.
