Although it remains to be seen if Kyrie Irving will earn a spot on the Eastern Conference bench for this year’s All-Star Game, Nike Basketball has a special make up of the Kyrie 2 ready just in case.
Seen here is a first look at the “All-Star” Nike Kyrie 2. Much like fellow Cleveland Cavalier LeBron James’ All-Star sneaker, this Kyrie 2 sees a return of the Velcro patch concept that Nike used on many of last year’s Air Max releases. The removable patches offer a number of ways to customize the sneakers, which appear to sport a yellow Hyperfuse base and a black support strap.
Even if Irving doesn’t play, Nike will likely end up releasing these alongside the rest of this year’s All-Star collection. A retail of $120 is expected, however these may see a price hike due to the patch treatment. Either way, look for the release to go down on February 12.
