Kyrie Irving marches to the beat of his own drum and his signature Nike Basketball line does too, especially the Kyrie 6. The Kyrie 6 has already explored Kyrie’s fascination with ancient Egyptian culture via “Khepri” and “Golden Mummy” styles created by Concepts and appeared in a “Bruce Lee” iteration, but now it’s nodding to an infamous ’00s fashion trend with a “Shutter Shades” makeup.

Also known as Venetian blinders, these horizontally slatted sunglasses were popularized by one Kanye West in 2007, and are now serving as the inspiration for Kyrie’s latest signature style. Equipped with a stark black upper, the Kyrie 6 “Shutter Shades” offers a duo of signature details: a textured hamsa heel piece that glows in the dark, and an iridescent Swoosh rimmed with blue trim.

Other details include pops of green and yellow placed around the lacing system and on the tongue branding, plus more hamsa graphics on the midfoot strap. Outsoles bring one final all-seeing eye accent, and combine a modified herrigbone traction pattern with Air Zoom Turbo forefoot cushioning for a responsive feel.

Kyrie and his Brooklyn Nets may be off the court for an indefinite period of time due to the novel coronavirus, but the Nike Kyrie 6 “Shutter Shades” is available on the Nike webstore now for $130 USD.

Elsewhere in the world of hoop shoes, LeBron James‘s Nike LeBron 17 has appeared in a bold new style that salutes the classic Command Force.
