Los Angeles-based streetwear brand Rokit announced on Instagram yesterday that the company has teamed up with Nike to drop a friends-and-family version of the Kyrie 5 that’s limited to only 300 pairs.
Known as the “Welcome Home” colorway, this special edition features large reverse reflective Swoosh branding along with a mini Swoosh logo across the lateral side. Unlike many of the styles that have already been released for this model, the flytrap lacing cage on the midfoot boasts a translucent material for on-court lockdown. Rokit branding is seen on the heel counter; a black and orange midsole and a translucent outsole finishes the look.
As of now, all 300 pairs of the “Welcome Home” Rokit x Nike Kyrie 5 sold out yesterday. and it’s unlikely that the shoe will be seeing a restock.
Prior to this release, Rokit dropped a special Nike Kyrie 5 collaboration earlier this year during the NBA All-Star Weekend that featured similar details mentioned above. As with any limited release, the pairs quickly sold out and are currently reselling on the secondary market, including on StockX, for around $500.
