Nike is starting to pump out colorways for their signature athletes. We’ve seen Kevin Durant’s KD 7s ramp up with more and newer colorways; next up is Kyrie Irving. Today, the Flytrap released online and through Nike Basketball retailers and Kyrie 1 fans got a look at a college inspired colorway.
Although the shoes don’t feature any kind of Duke logos, the black and blue colorway was created to represent Kyrie’s short stint with the Blue Devils. For those who don’t know Uncle Drew before he aged, Kyrie played 11 games and started eight of them in his freshman campaign. That was cut short due to injury and Kyrie left for the pros. As you may remember, Kyrie went still went number one overall with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
