Kyrie Irving is known for his incredible ball-handling and quick direction changes. For that reason, Nike designer Ben Nethongkome gave the shoe a look that fits Kyrie`s needs. The Flex Groove outsole features a zigzag split cut-out for a better flexibility and traction of the player. For a smooth transition, the sole has been curved on the sides, making it easier to play fast and fluid. The Sole itself incorporates foam and Nike Zoom Air cushioning in the heel.
After Kyrie took his services to New England, Nike pays tribute to his new home, Boston. This Kyrie 4 “City of Guardians” takes the colors of his team, the Boston Celtics, sporting a grey/silver upper with a woodgrain scheme. The midsole is kept in green and gold providing the shoe with the Boston flair.
