Nike Basketball has just unveiled the first two models of the Kyrie 2. The first pair to launch in 2016 is the Nike Kyrie 2 ‘Inferno’.
Each Kyrie 2 will tell a story just like the first edition, and as for the Inferno, they are inspired by Irving’s dribbling skills. His average dribbling speed is 21 miles per hour which is twice the amount for the average NBA player. As well, Kyrie can create four g’s of acceleration with his crossover and decelerate from 13 miles per hour to zero in about .2 seconds.
Designed by Leo Chang, who also designed the Kyrie 1, Irving’s second edition comes with Zoom Air for added traction and a cross strap for a lockdown feel.
