Back in December 2022, we saw NBA star Kyire Irving part ways with Nike. Since then, Irving has teamed up with ANTA and will be releasing his debut signature sneaker, the ANTA Kai 1. Not only has Irving signed a five-year deal with ANTA, but has also landed a role as Chief Creative Officer for ANTA Basketball. Seen on feet on Irving against the Nets earlier this week, we can see the upcoming "Artist On Court" colorway, which is expected to arrive later this year.
The ANTA Kai 1 “Artist On Court” features a colorful design, featuring mainly Purple and Pink hues. The upper appears to be constructed in a mix of mesh, nylon, and leather, though no official specifics have been released. The knit base layer appears in a Pink/Neon design, with the rest of the upper found dressed in Purple. We'll see a classic midfoot strap, alongside the Kyrie logo in Gold. Finishing off the look, we'll see a Sail rubber sole providing for both comfort and traction. Stay tuned for more information in the upcoming months.
The ANTA Kai 1 “Artist On Court” is expected to release Spring 2024 via antashop.shop. To stay informed on all things Jordan Brand and to stay up to date with the latest releases, connect with us on Instagram and Twitter.
