First, we see that the new model's silhouette falls in line with its predecessors. The mid-top features fused mesh construction, with a unique texture along the quarters and heel. Sneakerheads were fans of the cross-strap on the Kyrie 2, but it looks like the Kyrie 3 will instead be equipped with a reinforced midfoot. If the outsole is consistent with the leaked images, there's a new zoned traction pattern aimed to assist Irving with his sharp cuts and quick movements.
According to Irving in a recent interview, the Kyrie 3 will release on Jan. 21. Stand by for updates in the coming weeks.
UPDATE 12/7: A fresh profile photo of the burgundy Nike Kyrie 3 via btd2424. While a release date for this colorway hasn't officially been announced, the Kyrie 3 will launch in black and white on Christmas Day.
