Last summer, Kyrie Irving’s Nike Kyrie 2 signature sneaker adopted the colors and materials of the classic Nike Air Flight Huarache basketball shoes from 1992. And soon, Irving’s latest Kyrie 3 will take on the style of another iconic Nike shoe.
Shifting from a hoops inspiration to the runner category — but sticking with the Huarache theme — this upcoming colorway is inspired by the original “Ultramarine” Nike Air Huarache Light, a running shoe that debuted in 1993.
Dubbed the Kyrie 3 “Kyrache Light,” this makeup mimics the shades and materials seen on the early ’90s runner to a T.
There are the various tints of blue and purple, the bright orange accents and a black upper and white sole to balance everything out. The Kyrie 3’s upper even has a similar texture as the Air Huarache Light’s mesh, although that isn’t specific to this particular colorway.
The Nike Kyrie 3 “Kyrache Light” is expected to arrive just at the start of fall in September.
