Blazers and Janoskis are different in build, but each follows a color theme with one natural-colored pair and one blue pair. Tan Blazers use a rich indigo for accents while the denim-colored blue iteration equips soft swatches of sail. Each features wild zig-zagging embroidery across its Swoosh plus small crosses atop its sizable heel piece and lateral forefoot overlay. Exposed foam tongues with contrasting tags complete each look.
Meanwhile, the Janoski opts for a simpler look. The modern day classic skate-meets-boat-shoe is constructed of supple suede, and arrives in rich chestnut brown with navy embellishments or a light denim blue with navy. Swooshes are done up with delicate white embroidered lines, and these same lines appear on heel and forefoot alike. Bold brass top eyestays and trim white midsoles round each off.
Finally, Kyrie Irving’s flirtations with the world of skateboarding continue thanks to the Kyrie S2 Hybrid. Mixing pieces of the Kyrie 4, Kyrie 5 and Kyrie 6, the S2 Hybrid nods to the fine line it straddles between skate and hoops with a clever Nike SB tongue tab that’s been altered to read “BB.” The Kyrie 5’s signature Venus flytrap-inspired throat overlay is done up in blue with circle and star patterns to provide the shoe’s most notable detail while the cream base offers other blue embellishments and wing-like embroidered details.
