According to Nike, the baller has a special connection with the number 11. Included in his attachment to the number is his father, Drederick, wearing it during his basketball career, the amount of games the Nets standout played in his college career at Duke University, the year he was drafted (2011) and the day (March 11) he surpassed the 11,000 point mark.

The court-ready sneaker, according to Nike, was designed for “fast and quick-cutting playmakers,” the way Irving plays whenever he hits the court. It’s a tech-loaded shoe that features a large articulated Air Zoom Turbo bag that’s both flexible and responsive, the brand’s Traction 360 grip to help keep the wearer feeling connected to the court and a plush foam for optimum cushion and a smooth underfoot feel at the heel and a mid foot strap for stability. Also, the sneaker was built the shoe on a last that is 5mm closer to the court.
