Like last year, it turns out that Nike Basketball once again has an “Easter” Pack in the works. As Sneaker1 has revealed in another post, an “Easter” colorway of the Nike LeBron 13 is a part of the collection. Last year, Nike’s “Easter” Pack had included Kyrie Irving’s very first signature sneaker model, the Kyrie 1. This year’s pack also includes an “Easter” rendition of another Kyrie Irving signature sneaker silhouette, this time the second one, the Nike Kyrie 2. However, while the Nike sneakers release 2016 of the Kyrie 2 “Easter” will take place next year, sneakerheads can cop the model’s “All-Star” iteration right away.
“Green Glow” was a trending hue back in 2013 when it was making frequent appearances on some of Jordan Brand’s and Nike’s most popular sneakers. An innumerable amount of silhouettes from back then had featured this minty fresh hue in the form of accents and this upcoming “All-Star” colorway of the Nike Kyrie 2 marks the return of the popular shade. Throughout this season, Kyrie Irving has been absent from the Cleveland Cavaliers games and he is yet to get back to his full practice activities. Thus, it seems likely that Kyrie will be rocking this Kyrie 2 “All-Star” upon his comeback on the hardwood.
Much like the KD 4 that had been designed by Leo Chang, the Kyrie 2 model is known being a mid-top sneaker with a sleek design, equipped with a reinforced fuse and mesh base with an inverted strap. The inner tongue not only features Kyrie’s signature but also “JBY,” which is a short form of his motto, “Just Be You.” The Green Glow is underlying the Black that covers the upper of this sneaker, blending ominous with vibrancy, while both the midsole and outsole are also covered in Green Glow.
The All-Star Weekend is so near and Kyrie Irving could return any day now, so it is not surprising the Nike release 2016 of this sneaker is set to take place in the next coming days. While it will still be a while before Kyrie Irving appears on the court, this Nike Kyrie 2 “All-Star” is on its way to retailers on February 17th.
