Towards the final week of July 2021, Kyrie Irving took to social media to address a leaked image of his forthcoming Kyrie 8 by calling them “trash” and that
The camouflage pattern is the stand-out element of these kicks and it alternates between navy, baby blue and sporty blue shadings along the synthetic toe boxes and mid-foot — a noticeable design modification from the Kyrie 7s which were mainly done up in mesh. From there, baby blue trimming shows face just above the midsoles, on the tongues which bear Irving’s oversized signature, and around the navy blue lateral and medial heel panels that host white outlines of a Swoosh logo. Moreover, the interior liners look to be coated with a muted purple hue while the bottom units are outfitted in white.
It’s still unclear if these are an official colorway or if the shoes have even been approved by Irving to hit mass production. However, being that the start of the new NBA season is approaching, it’s likely that we’ll learn official release details for the Kyrie 8 in the coming weeks.
