Here’s your chance to dress like your favorite “Uncle.”
Pepsi and Kyrie Irving debuted the fourth chapter in their humorous “Uncle Drew” video series yesterday on YouTube. This time, Irving heads to Miami, where his curmudgeonly Uncle Drew character settles the score with his nemesis, Walt (NBA baller Ray Allen in old-man disguise), as they’re cheered on by the also-disguised comedian J.B. Smoove, former basketball pro Baron Davis and a crowd of unsuspecting locals.
To mark the video’s launch, Pepsi and Irving have teamed up with Nike to unveil a special-edition version of Irving’s signature Kyrie 1 shoe, which can be seen in the video.
The sneaker has an all-white upper, accented with a navy Swoosh on the side that features famous quotes from “Uncle Drew,” and the character’s face appears on the shoe’s insole. Other distinguishing elements include a red-and-gold Kyrie logo on the tongue and the signature shark-tooth midsole design, dramatized with a brick-colored outsole.
To get your hands on a pair of the Kyrie Irving x Uncle Drew Nike Kyrie 1 shoes, fans have to download the Pepsi Pass app and enter a sweepstakes to win one of the limited-edition kits. Other items in the pack include a Pepsi & Uncle Drew Nike hoodie, an Uncle Drew bobblehead and some stickers and magnets. Pepsi will be giving out five kits every week over the next three weeks — though the shoe and hoodie sizes are apparently at their discretion.
