Kyrie Irving made the NBA All-Star selection this past weekend and took to the court in his custom, moccasin inspired basketball shoes. Kyrie was recently dropped by Nike after being accused of posting an anti-Semitic movie on his Instagram story. Kyrie joined forces with another former Nike partner Ben Kirschner to create the kicks he wore to the 2023 NBA ALL-Star game.
The shoes show heavy influences of a moccasin with strings of fabric draping the top of the shoe, while the base of the sneaker is made of white leather. Accents of Kyrie's unique monogram can be seen on the tongue and revealed when lifting the moccasin threads, another added detail is the "POWER TO THE PEOPLE" below the moccasin threads. Silver tones can be seen on the toe box and tongue, while a red outline on the tongue and black heel finish off the kicks.
Theres no word on what brand the shoes are associated with or if they're part of a new signature line Kyrie will be releasing in the future. One thing we know for sure is that they will not feature any Nike branding. No word on if this exact model will drop, but will keep you updated as information arrises.
