Kyrie Irving kicked off the NBA season tonight in a graphic-covered colorway of his Nike Kyrie 4 sneakers, but prior to tonight's action, Irving has been spotted practicing in a previously unseen model which could be his next signature shoe.

Images from a Celtics open practice earlier this month show Irving getting back to action in the sneaker, which is presumably the Nike Kyrie 5. 

The shoe itself is reminiscent of previous Kyrie models, but introduces what appears to be a shroud which is connected with the shoelaces.

The Nike Kyrie 5 is expected to release later this year.
