Kyrie Irving continues his hot streak of kicks with his latest colorway, which honors his father and his birthplace. Most athletes with their own signature kicks give meaning to their colorways that reference their life before stardom, their achievements, and even some of their hobbies. The Kyrie 1 made a very strong debut this year with its “Dream” colorway, which was inspired by Kyrie’s dream of playing on Christmas Day. People really took notice of his kicks with the “Deceptive Red” and “Brotherhood” colorway, which honored his short time at Duke University.
The upcoming release of the Kyrie 1 has a colorway that we have seen before on the Nike Hyperdunk 2013 “Kyrie Irving”, that features a mix of teal and bronze. Most people don’t know that Kyrie was born in Melbourne, Australia where his dad was a professional basketball player until he was the age of 2. This colorway could be a nod to Australia or to his father and his playing time down under; either way this colorway dresses his signature sneaker perfectly. Whether you’re a Kyrie fan or just love energetic colorways on sneakers; the Kyrie 1 “Australia” is perfect for you. Make sure you add the Kyrie 1 “Australia” to your collection on August 26th from Finishline.com.
