It's been dubbed White-sole Summer '16. The "Ky-rispy Kreme." The "Ky-rache." The "Killer Crossover." The latest pairs of Kyrie 2s to hit shelves have been perfect for the summer season, complete with white midsoles and outsoles that could make any outfit pop. The challenge, of course, is keeping those white soles clean beyond a few wears. Same goes for the new "USA" KD9 and the latest retro Jordan to hit in the "Champagne" Jordan VIII.
When you factor in the 360-degree traction that is a major detail in Nike Basketball's second signature sneaker for Cavs guard Kyrie Irving, however, things get even more tricky. Thankfully, for those who prefer to avoid white soles all together, Nike has you covered thanks to the "Triple Black" colorway of the Kyrie 2. Hitting shelves on July 2, the newest edition of Irving's wildly popular shoe comes complete with a black upper, black tongue and laceloops, black midsole and black outsole. The details, also black, include Irving's "KI" logo on the tongue, and a suede strap that reaches from the insole all the way to the outside of the shoe's upper.
While Irving never wore this colorway on the floor while he was starring as one of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, it may be a sign that Nike Basketball is going to start offering a few more options when it comes to the soles of their signatures. The "Triple Black" Kyrie 2 will be available this Saturday at Nike.com and various retailers across the country, retailing at $120. Take a look at all of the "Triple Black" details below.
