New York City’s infectious energy and fast pace connect the city’s five boroughs – providing a perfect backdrop for this month’s festivities. Nike Basketball drew inspiration from the distinctive architecture that dots New York’s skyline for the new collection featuring the Kobe X, KD7, Kyrie 1 and LeBron 12.
Kyrie Irving represents a new-age speed with an old-school flair to his game. Don’t blink because he’ll pass his opponents in a flash just like the “ghost” City Hall Subway Station. The City Hall Subway stop remains intact, but flies by in an instant outside the windows of the 6 Train. The KYRIE 1 is built for Irving’s game-changing speed and deception with its 360-degree dynamic traction, Zoom Air and lockdown fit.
The Brooklyn Bridge was an architectural marvel when it was completed in 1883. Its steel-wire suspension system was both functionally forward-looking and visually arresting. The KD 7, Durant’s seventh signature shoe, embodies a similar hybridization with its Hyperposite heel and responsive Zoom Air cushioning. It is light and tight, performance optimized in a clean aesthetic for stability and flexibility.
