Concepts has joined forces with Nike to give Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving’s latest signature basketball sneaker a new look.
Images of the Concepts x Nike Kyrie 7 have surfaced, and for the latest release, ancient Egypt will be used as inspiration for the project. The look of the collaborative shoe is executed in a tonal teal blue mesh-based upper that is coupled with a light blue shade covering the tongue and shoelaces. The shoe’s standout detail is the Swoosh branding on the lateral side that’s decorated with wings while a gold Eye of Ra Egyptian symbol is stamped on the medial portion. Adding to the design is Concepts and Irving’s signature branding on the tongue, while an orange Zoom Turbo-cushioned midsole and rubber outsole sit underneath.
Since 2018, Concepts and Nike have delivered several Egyptian-themed Nike Kyrie collabs that started with the Concepts x Nike Kyrie 5 “Ikhet,” and a year later, the two doubled up the number of pairs by dropping the “Golden Mummy” and “Khepri” Concepts x Nike Kyrie 6 sneakers.
Although images have surfaced, a release date for the Concepts x Nike Kyrie 7 collab has yet to be announced by the brands.
