Along with Jordan Brand’s upcoming Chinese New Year-themed collection, Boston Celtics star baller Kyrie Irving’s Nike Kyrie 4 signature sneaker is joining in on the celebration with a head-turning look.
The “Chinese New Year” (or “CNY”) Kyrie 4 features a bright red upper built with a mix of suede and synthetic materials. The standout feature appears on the shoe’s Swoosh branding, which has been covered in an intricate floral embroidery in black, white, red and gold. The floral embroidery also appears over the tongue logo, while a two-tone outsole balances the look.
This release is slotted to launch Thursday in Asia; a stateside release has not yet been confirmed. Other celebratory Chinese New Year-inspired looks on the way from Nike include a multicolor take on the Air VaporMax runner and new renditions of the Air Jordan 6 Retro and Air Jordan 32.
Meanwhile, the Kyrie 4 will also undergo a Black History Month-themed makeover alongside the KD 10 and LeBron 15, with a launch expected on Monday in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
