We’ve been hearing and seeing rumblings of the return of Kyrie Irving’s fictional character Uncle Drew in the last few days. Just yesterday Pepsi and Kyrie Uncle Drew released a commercial hinting at his return on Thursday.

Now today images began surfacing of a collaboration between Uncle Drew (Nike) and Pepsi. Certain people┬áhave been receiving a special “Uncle Drew” version of the Nike Kyrie 1 that comes in some pretty amazing packaging as you can see above. The shoes are believed to be limited to 150 pairs and come in a locker with a bunch of other goodies including an Uncle Drew bobblehead and a Pepsi x Uncle Drew hoodie.

However, this isn’t the first time we see this sneaker as Kyrie 1 afficionado @tmarkgotkickss already was seen with a pair. What are your thoughts on the Pepsi x Nike Kyrie 1 Uncle Drew? Would you like to own a pair?

Author’s Take

It’s about time Uncle Drew got his own sneaker. Why is there only 150 pairs?┬áNike should have made these available to the public cause I’m sure people would have copped these for sure.
