Sneaker giant Nike is gearing up for the launch of an all-new colorway of its Nike Kyrie 8 silhouette. Dubbed “Chinese New Year,” this latest edition will be released as part of the Chinese New Year festivities in 2023.
The next edition of the recently developed Nike Kyrie 8 silhouette is set to debut in Summer 2023.
Nike Kyrie 8 “Chinese New Year” Shoe Will Arrive in Photon Dust, Washed Teal and Arctic Orange Overlays
Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving always had great skills on the court, but it was his work with Nike that introduced him to a love for creating basketball shoes. Working with the brand’s design team, Irving has created a signature shoe collection that combines Nike innovation with special elements that nod to Irving’s origins.
Each variation of the Kyrie Irving sneakers builds on previous iterations and draws inspiration from past models to produce shoes that incorporate Irving’s unique touches and a touch of nostalgia into an otherwise modern design.
The Nike Kyrie 8 “Chinese New Year” should be the Brooklyn Nets point guard’s final sneaker with the Oregon-based sportswear company.
So far, the sneaker community has already been made aware of the “White/University Red”, “Multi-color” and “N7colorways, which have been teased by the footwear label for the past few weeks. Now, some sneaker insiders like @kicksdong are already sharing the first images of the “Chinese New Year” version of the Nike Kyrie 8, which is due out next year.
The Kyrie 8 comes in a stunning Photon Dust/Photon Dust-Washed Teal-Summit White-Arctic Orange-University Red color scheme.
A jade-like Swoosh glides gracefully across the medial and lateral side rails of this sneaker, which features a breathable mesh upper that appears to be influenced by classic blue and white Chinese ceramic. The fender is reinforced with a TPU grid overlay.
Roman numerals are stitched around the heel areas of this version. A flamboyant varsity red tone completes the design. The Zoom Air midsole appears below in a subtle Arctic Orange color scheme.
Finalizing the aesthetic are the brightly colored insoles which are perfectly combined with plain insoles in dark tones.
In Spring 2023, men’s sizes of the Nike Kyrie 8 “Chinese New Year” will be on sale for $140. You can sign up on the brand’s website for quick updates on this launch.
