Veteran’s Day means patriotic kicks for basketball players like Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony. While Jordan Brand was the one making headlines today for their USA-inspired sneakers, it left us wondering as to why Nike didn’t create special kicks for the signature athletes. Or maybe they did but just didn’t make too big a deal about it?
If Nike WOULD have released Veteran’s Day colorways of their signature sneakers, Kyrie Irving may have just shown us what he would have worn on the court if he wasn’t injured. The Kyrie 1 that you see above features a camo print on the tongue and heel counter with olive green on the rest of the shoe.
Would you have liked to see this Kyrie 1 hit retail?
