Initially shared back in January, the Nike Kyrie 5 “Duke” now gets an official nod boasting blue flame graphics along the upper with reflective touches on each side’s Swoosh logo.

The upcoming Jordan Apex-Utility blends the modern Air Jordan 1 Flyknit with Nike’s lightweight React midsole technology.
