Nike has officially taken the wraps off the Kyrie 2, engineered to meet the demands of the point guard with the killer crossover. Kyrie Irving's ability to position his body in such low angles that the sides of his shoes touch the floor prompted Nike designer Leo Chang to introduce an unprecedented curved bottom surface of the midsole and outsole, designed to enhance intense banking and cutting. Additional performance benefits include a midfoot strap atop the Hyperfuse build, delivering a lockdown fit, and Zoom Air in the heel for responsive cushioning. Rounding out the details are an outsole herringbone pattern for maximum traction, coupled with a large pivot circle for multidirectional grip. The Kyrie 2 is available now on NIKEiD, with the introductory "Effect" colorway available beginning December 15. The "Inferno" colorway -- featured here -- launches January 1, 2016.
