Concepts x Nike Kyrie 5 “Ikhet”

Kyrie Irving and sneaker boutique Concepts will be releasing a special collaboration on his new Nike Kyrie 5 model.

This Nike Kyrie 5 is inspired by Kyrie’s Hamsa hand tattoo. Its Sandy Beige upper nods to the age of Ancient Egypt and pyramids, while having a chiseled Grey Swoosh, Red tongue to represent the nose of the Sphinx before it decayed, atop a Purple sole that represents the sunset against the pyramids. Dual branding on the tongue shroud, along with Egyptian hieroglyphs on each heel completes the design.

Dubbed the Concepts x Nike Kyrie 5 Ikhet, the colorway is inspired by Kyrie’s Hamsa tattoo seen on his hand. The shoe features a Sandy Beige upper which is meant to represent the age of Ancient Egypt and pyramids. Some of the finer details include a chiseled grey Swoosh, a red tongue to represent the nose of the Sphinx before it decayed, and a purple sole that represents the sunset against the pyramids. Final touches include dual branding on the tongue and Egyptian hieroglyphs on each heel.

Nike Kyrie 4 Halloween Black Rage Green

We’re approaching the end of the Kyrie 4‘s wildly impressive run, and it looks like Nike is finishing it off strong with an upcoming Halloween edition that features a black Swoosh logo dipped in green slime. In addition to that hair-raising detail, Nike adds a similar effect to the Kyrie Irving logo on the tongue as well as the rubber outsole. We expect this to be one of several holiday-themed offerings by the brand and likely one of the last of the fourth model before the official unveiling and release of the highly anticipated Nike Kyrie 5.

Kyrie Irving‘s Nike Kyrie 4 makes a strong case as the most enjoyable signature basketball line on the market today. Designer Benjamin Nethongkome and the rest of the Nike Basketball team have created interesting colorways with clever backstories for the Boston Celtics point guard time and time again, and the latest Kyrie to join in on the fun is this new “Halloween” edition. A pitch-dark black serves as the base for bold green accents on the outsole, Kyrie tongue logo, and the midfoot Swoosh, which features a dripping green slime effect that goes all the way down to the midsole — providing a look that’s reminiscent of the graphics used in the classic Goosebumps book series.

Halloween is right around the corner, which means Nike will begin releasing several inspired-releases for the spooky holiday. One of those is the Kyrie 4, which will be available later in October.Dressed in a Black and Rage Green color scheme. This Nike Kyrie 4 features a Black-based upper paired with Green accents throughout. But the highlight of the shoe is the Black Swoosh logo dipped in Green slime as well as on the Kyrie tongue logo.
