Recently, the Nike Kyrie 8 leaked, which is Kyrie Irving’s next signature shoe. However, he is not a fan of his upcoming model, calling them trash.
After k11kicks posted images of the leaked Kyrie 8 on Instagram, the man himself added his response:
‘I have nothing to do with the design or marketing of the upcoming #Kyrie8, IMO these are trash! I have Absolutely nothing to do with them! Nike plans to release it without my okay regardless of what I say, so I apologize in advance to all of my sneaker heads and true supporters of the #KAI11 brand.’
Although Kyrie stated he had no involvement with the Kyrie 8, this is usually a case-by-case scenario. We will have to wait and see what’s the next step. However, it’s doubtful that Nike scraps the design and creates a new look.
Breaking down the model, the pair resembles that of the Kyrie 6 as well as other past Kyrie releases. Constructed with mesh, suede, and leather while iridescent accents run throughout. Lastly, we have Kyrie’s logo on the heel, tongue, and outsole.
