Kyrie Irving's fifth signature model for Nike has arrived with a brand new cushioning system, improved lockdown and a cool as hell nickname for the debut colorway, the Kyrie 5 "Black Magic". Kyrie's line has always been known for its superior responsiveness and and lockdown, and the 5 takes it to the next level. The shoe is built on the brand new Air Zoom Turbo unit, an articulated cushion that follows the curved shape of the outsole. A new midfoot containment system inspired by the Venus flytrap clamps downs down for optimal support. Finally, a tread pattern inspired by Kyrie's Hamsa tattoo curves around the outsole providing grip at any angle.
The "Black Magic" color features a black engineered mesh 3/4 cut upper with white accents on top of a speckled midsole. Kyrie's signature and "KI" logo appear on the tongue and insoles, and evil eye embossing hits the heel.
The Kyrie 5 "Black Magic" releases in-store and online email order on Friday, November 23rd at 10:00am.
