Following up with the release of the Wimbledon collaboration, we’re getting our first look at the third and final installment of the Kyrie Irving and tennis star Nick Kyrgios’ hybrid sneaker collaboration. Let’s take a closer look at the NikeCourt Air Zoom Vapor X Kyrie 5 NYC.
“The shoes arrive in time for Flushing Meadows. This special version matches the purple and green color scheme of the New York City apparel collection. Graffiti-inspired details on the Swoosh and torn-poster graphics on the toe bumper are integrated on the upper in tribute to both the city and its basketball culture.”
Combining two models into one, the Nike Vapor x Kyrie 5 ‘Wimbledon’ sports the same tooling as the Vapor X, with the Kyrie 5’s upper as the build. Meanwhile, the outsole is a featuring a Zoom Air bag in the heel is featured. Finishing off the tooling is both a medial and lateral TPU plate that wraps over the midsole and cages your foot into the footbed. The same exact upper as the Kyrie 5 is introduced into the shoes. A mesh makes up the forefoot, while a flytrap inspired lockdown system makes up the lacing enclosure at the tongue. Completing the shoes is a mostly white look with green and gold accents at the flytrap, Nike branding, Kyrie logo, and midsole.
The NikeCourt Air Zoom Vapor X Kyrie 5 NYC is slated to release Saturday, August 24th, 2019 for $160. Releasing alongside these is the all-new Kobe AD NXT FastFit for Mamba Day on the 24th.
