Despite the menacing moniker, the story behind the upcoming Nike Kyrie 1 “Dungeon” isn’t harrowing as one would expect, though there is physical punishment involved. When it got too dark to shoot hoops out on the court, the young Kyrie Irving would hit the weights down in the basement of his childhood home — a makeshift gym lit by a single candle that he referred to as “the dungeon.” The corresponding shoe takes on a dull grey caste, lit by pops of Volt at the Swoosh and lining. The kicks launch next Wednesday through select Nike Basketball retailers and online.
