This past January, Nike unexpectedly fused performance models from two different courts, the Kyrie 5 and NikeCourt Vapor X, to create a special hybrid model for tennis star Nick Kyrgios to wear during the 2019 Australian Open. New images suggest that the model is returning in a brand new colorway in the near future.
While nothing has been confirmed, the timing of the photos hints that this pair could potentially be dropping in celebration of the 2019 Wimbledon tournament currently underway in London. It sports a white mesh upper with various green and gold accents on the tongue, Swoosh, and midsole.
Elements like a Venus Flytrap-inspired lace covering, all-seeing eye graphic on the heel counter, and the Swoosh placement on each side panel have been borrowed from Irving's fifth signature sneaker. Additional branding includes a mash-up of the Kyrie and NikeCourt logos on the tongue and insole.
A release date has yet to be announced, but expect the Nike Kyrie 5 x NikeCourt Vapor X "Wimbledon" to retail for $160. Check out some detailed shots of the pair below.
