Kyrie has had quite the impact in Boston this season and his Celtics are fighting for the top seed in the Eastern Conference right now. The Chinese zodiac calendar may say that 2018 is the year of the dog, but that isn’t stopping Nike from releasing a ‘Year Of The Monkey’ Kyrie 4. This sneaker is paying homage to Kyrie Irving‘s birth year, 1992 , which was the “year of the monkey” and his birthday, that was on on March 23rd. The shoe features a Black upper that features two different materials; a sleek, embossed zodiac pattern with a rough swoosh on the heel and collar, and a toned-down mesh on the midfoot and toe box. You’ll notice the details on the shoe feature contrasting monkey logos on the tongue, red on the right and blue on the left as well as multi-colored design also celebrating the year of the monkey on the outsole.
