FOR sneakerheads, classics never grow old. Even if they're just colorways.
Nike has released the Kyrie 2 Kyrache which features colors and details inspired by the Nike Air Flight Huarache that debuted in 1992. The shoe gained popularity after it was used by the Michigan Fab Five, considered as the "greatest class ever recruited" in college basketball led by then freshmen Chris Webber, Juwan Howard and Jalen Rose. The Wolverines would fall to Duke, Irving's alma mater, in the 1992 NCAA finals.
Incidentally, 1992 was also the year Irving was born in Melbourne, Australia. The original shoe, also re-released by Nike, features bold purple and blue color-blocking on a white base with an exoskeleton design that mimics the intuitive fit of ancient Mayan sandals. The standard Huarache badge on the tongue is replaced by Irving's unique logo. Adding to the signature touch is the Cleveland Cavalier guard's #2 on the heel.
The Kyrie 2 Kyrache will be made available on the market on June 7 (June 8, Manila time).
