Kyrie Irving is still wearing the Kyrie 4 in games and limited colorways are still surfacing, but Nike is also gearing up to officially unveil the Kyrie 5 in the near future. Today, a new colorway of the the point guard's alleged fifth signature has surfaced.
The new silhouette largely resembles the shape of the Kyrie 3 and 4 with a few minor tweaks. For this particular colorway, which is said to be inspired by the cartoon Rick and Morty, a navy blue mesh upper is accented by a silver Swoosh on the side panel and Kyrie logo on the tongue. The standout feature is a green and purple tie dye pattern which covers the lace area. Colorful details continue onto the outsole with purple, pink, red, blue, teal, and green sections.
Irving was originally spotted in a black and silver version of the Kyrie 5 at Celtics practice earlier this month, but has yet to lace up a pair in a game this season. According to @ayanamy001 on Twitter, an official reveal for Irving's new shoe can be expected in the coming weeks.
