Aside from the notable Nike Kyrie 3 Samurai, this forthcoming hyper cobalt edition is actually noted as a homage to Kyrie Irving’s alma mater — Duke University.
Dubbed “Brotherhood,” Kyrie Irving credits a lot of his success and basketball knowledge with his time at the university and to Coach K., even when he only played in 11 games for Duke.
The sneaker’s colorway takes cues from the university’s signature palette with white dominating its upper, followed by blue accents prominent on the inner lining and outsole unit, which pronounces the overall profile. Glossy black swooshes further accentuate its design, while pops of bright crimson also appear on the outsole.
Retailing for $120, select Nike retailers nationwide such as Finishline have the pair releasing this Friday, Jan. 27th, while more availability is set for February 1st.
