nike KYRIE 2
material: synthetix/textile

Kyrie's ballhandling is superior, ask Brandon Knight. Actually, you could ask anyone who has ever faced him. And his second signature shoe supports these quick and unpredictable movements. Ever since Kyrie debuted in the league all eyes were on him. That is why Nike precisely investigated the Cavalier guard's movements, before designing the KYRIE 2. While dribbling, Irving moves the basketball almost twice as fast as the average NBA player. All he needs are 1,5 seconds to reach the basket from the three point-line – from a standstill. Therefore he is around 15 procent faster than all other point guards playing in the world's best league. The probably most interesting. as well as most important fact from Nike's investigation is Uncle Drew's weight distribution while dribbling: He puts his body into an inclined position and puts a part of his body weight onto his outside which, by the way, ends up touching the ground. Ultimately Nike designer Leo Chang decided to create an innovative, rounded outsole which winded up as a huge success – even though its strange look got doubted at first. To complete Kyrie's outstanding footwork the non-slip rubber outsole including a durable traction pattern comes in perfectly.

Only a few weeks after winning his first champion with and for Cleveland, Mr. Irving already is lacing up his brand-new sneakers for the next challenge. A challenge not to be underestimated and certainly one that has to been won. As the reigning MVP of the USA men basketball team, which he received when USA repeated for the first time as World Cup winners, he has a reputation to match. Of course, he has enough proven players around him that can decide games on their own. But that doesn't hinder him to feature on some highlight plays and break an ankle or two on the way. And to match these expectations, the KYRIE 2 USA makes sure he does that in style. Because we already know that he does a lot of things in style. Like pulling up for a three pointer in the reigning MVP's face with the game tied in the last minute of Game 7 – in the NBA finals. Against the best regular season team in NBA history. Sigh. Uncle Drew for you.

Bring Your Game: Kyrie Irving

Brand information: nike

When it comes to basketball, there is no way around Nike – the brand with the Swoosh belongs to the game like dunks, three-pointers and cross-overs. Whether in the NBA, European leagues or your neighborhood streetball court – the world’s largest manufacturer of sports equipment is a staple in all things basketball since the 1980s.
The Nike „Blazer“, released in 1973, was the company’s first sneaker designed specifically for basketball. While the shoe was very functional for its time and was worn by NBA scoring machine George „Iceman“ Gervin, Nike still was not able to step out of other sports companies’ shadows. Following models of the early 80s, like the now legendary „Air Force 1“ and „Dunk“ also did not manage the success the company had hoped for. That all changed when in 1984/85 Michael Jordan decided to conquer the NBA and the shoe game with Nike. While the „Blazer“ was Nike’s way of politely knocking on the door of the basketball-sneaker world, they blew it out of its frame with the success of „His Airness“ and the „Air Jordan 1“.

Nike is the frontrunner in basketball

Ever since then Nike changed the game of basketball. The triumph of the AJ1 was not only the birth of the iconic „Air Jordan“ - dynasty. It also paved the way for a variety of shoe lines like the Flight, Hyperdunk, Air Max and Foamposites. Today about 60 percent of the NBA’s players rock the Swoosh. Among them are some of the biggest names of the game: From Sir Charles Barkley in the 90s, Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant in the 2000s, to Lebron James and Kevin Durant today – the superstars of the NBA achieve mindblowing feats wearing their signature Nike sneakers.
Nike not only specializes in shoes though. These days ballers can dress up in perfomance sportswear bearing the Swoosh from t-shirts to hoodies, sweat pants, shorts, sweat bands and socks. Wearing Nike you can be sure that while playing your next game not only will you be outfitted in highly functional and valuable gear – you will also look pretty damn good wetting jumpers from all over the court.
