The Kyrie 2 has built a name for itself based largely on sleek, contemporary design that almost exclusively features meshes and other synthetics. For its latest colorway though, it’ll tap a classic material oft seen on menswear or throwback hoop silhouettes.
I speak, of course, of suede — or a close faux approximation of it, anyway. The Nike Kyrie 2 Team Red features a monochromatic crimson palette, locked-down with suede straps that add a premium touch. Orange speckling on the midsole delivers a pop of complementary contrast, but that hardly detracts from the theme: all red everything.
The Nike Kyrie 2 Team Red releases April 27 at retailers nationwide.
