With the holiday season officially upon us, Boston Celtics’ All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving got into the giving spirit by gifting a young fan an unreleased pair of game-worn Nike Kyrie 5s.
This kind gesture came shortly after a dominating performance by Irving last night in a regular season game against his team’s rival—the New York Knicks. In an Instagram post from the NBA, Irving is seen handing over his signature kicks to the young fan who was outfitted in his jersey.
The Kyrie 5 pairs a navy mesh-based upper with a metallic silver Swoosh branding on both sides. The shoe’s standout feature includes a tie-dye-colored flytrap construction on the midfoot to provide wearers a better lockdown. The multicolored trend continues on the curved-shaped tooling by boasting an assortment of hues on separate sections of the outsole. Unlike the game-worn pair given to the young fan, Irving’s personal messages written on the midsole won’t be making their way onto the retail release.
