This past July, Cleveland Cavaliers rookie and Number 1 Overall Pick Kyrie Irving confirmed via his Twitter account that he signed an endorsement deal with Nike. While no signature product has been developed for Irving just yet, you can bet that Nike has some interesting things in store for the new face of Cleveland basketball, evident by his footwear in Chris Paul's All-Star Charity Pickup Game this past Saturday.
With LeBron as one of his teammates, it was fitting that Kyrie broke out a never-before-seen PE colorway of the LeBron 8 V/2 Low. Perhaps styled as a nod to Irving's Duke roots, the shoe is black-based with royal blue detailing along the eyestay, Swoosh logo, inner lining and 360-Max Air unit.
Considering the animosity Cleveland sports fans have toward LeBron, how do you think they'll respond to their future point guard wearing LBJ signature product?
Oh yeah, Chris Paul wore the Jordan CP3.V if you were wondering...
