Nike’s newest signature athlete has been big in terms of marketing. Since his rise to stardom, he’s been a poster boy and cash cow. First with Pepsi in the Uncle Drew bit, he recently came out with a Footlocker commercial highlighting his acting skills. We believe Kyrie should stick to his day job.
Irving was outshot by the Splash Brothers and more specifically, Stephen Curry as he was ousted in the 3 Point Contest. Irving definitely looked fresh with his first signature shoe on foot but more importantly, he had the Flytraps on his feet.
The Flytraps will be releasing in stores and online at retailers like Footlocker.com on Thursday, Februray 26 as a general release. We fully expect these to feature a $110 retail price tag.
