Kyrie Irving’s first signature shoe, the Nike Kyrie, dropped in late 2014 when Irving was a 4th year player and already an established star. He was the 20th player to get a signature shoe with Nike, but the first one since Kevin Durant, whose shoe the Nike KD debuted in 2007. The Kyrie line proved quite popular in the NBA, with a growing number of players opting for it as their primary game time shoe.
But on December 5, 2022, Nike cut ties with Irving after Kyrie posted a Twitter link to a documentary with antisemitic messages. Kyrie quickly found a new home with Chinese shoe brand Anta, where he serves as the Chief Creative Officer of Anta Basketball, and will soon debut a new signature sneaker. In the meantime, he’s headlining the Shock Wave 5 silhouette.
