Nike has been rolling out a special line of shoes inspired by Cleveland Cavaliers’ star Kyrie Irving lately. On Thursday, his Kyrie 2’s hit shelves and the most popular shoe is the Duke-themed version.
Irving isn’t too happy with the state of his career in Cleveland right now, however he is still pretty happy about being a former Blue Devil. Irving only played 11 games at Duke due to injury, but he still wanted to represent them and wore his the black Duke-themed shoes around today.
Those are pretty awesome and even the current Blue Devils have taken a liking to them. They wore the black version in their game against Pitt last week and just received the blue version this week.
It’s nice to see that even though his NBA career hasn’t turned out like he had hoped, Irving can still show his pride in where he came from.
