Model: Kyrie 7
Release Date: June 5
Buy: Nike SNKRS
What We’re Saying: When Kevin Durant decided to team up with Kyrie Irving and sign with the Brooklyn Nets, it brought together two of the most exciting basketball players in the world — no, we didn't forget about you, James Harden. As both Kyrie and KD are Nike athletes — with their own signature sneakers — the marketing possibilities are now endless for the biggest brand in basketball.
Taking full advantage of the Kyrie and KD connection, the Swoosh is utilizing standout colorways from each player's signature line and transferring them to the other athlete's current on-court sneaker. For example, Irving's Kyrie 7 will soon be released in an iteration that harkens back to Durant's KD 7 "Weatherman," arguably the greatest KD colorway ever. Aptly dubbed the "Ky-D," the Kyrie 7 boasts both the vibrant colors and the signature topographical map-inspired lines that made the KD 7 "Weatherman" a hit.
Blending KD's colors and designs with Kyrie's signature sneaker, this distinctive release is a must-cop for hoops fans. If you'd like to add the Kyrie 7 "Ky-D" to your collection, you'll have the chance when the colorway releases on June 5 at 10 a.m. through SNKRS.
