Top 5 Nike Kyrie 2 Colorways!
Kyrie Irving has had one heck of a year! He has seen the release of his second signature shoe, made the All Star team, entered the playoffs as the top seeded team in the Eastern Conference, demolished the entire Eastern Conference (the Raptors did put up a good fight though), put up a phenomenal performance in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, a very good outing in Game 6, and helped Lebron James force a Game 7 after trailing 3-1. That is a pretty extensive list of accomplishments for Irving, and even though the Sole Brothers initially discussed their Top 5 Nike Kyrie 2 Colorways a few weeks ago, with Game 7 coming up in a few short days, there is no better time to get into the festivities. The Kyrie 2 is one of Don and Sammy’s favorite shoes so far this year, even though it does have its flaws. Don and Sammy will each give their respective Top 5 colorways, and this list does not include PEs.
Honorable Mention: Kyrispie Kreme (Sammy) and Crossover (Don)
5. Green Glow (Sammy)
The design of the Kyrie 2 Green Glow is simple, but the bright green color contrasting with the black makes it an eye catching and awesome looking shoe. The bright green outsole is awesome, especially once you pass a defender, all they see after that is your green glow.
5. BHM (Don)
The African style design on the strap of the shoe is dope and the rest of the shoe is Don’s favorite color, black. Don loves how it is a very subtle, classy design.
4. Crossover (Sammy)
These are dope, but Sammy said he probably wouldn’t play in them since they are white and would get dirty easily.
4. EYBL (Don)
Don likes this colorway since it is pretty close to a blackout, which is his thing for some reason.
3. Cavs (Sammy)
These are sick! (My personal favorite) Sammy likes that the midsole and outsole are both the same shade of yellow to make one solid line, it is a simple and subtle touch that makes this shoe blend together and look awesome.
3. Red Velvet
This colorway is, you guessed it, named after red velvet cake. I have never really understood why people like red velvet cake so much, I’d take cheesecake over red velvet every time. Anyways, Don loves this colorway since he does like maroon and he likes solid colored shoes (these are mostly solid, since they have cream colored speckles on the midsole).
2. Red Velvet (Sammy)
Sammy, if you did not know, loves the color maroon, it is one of his favorites. In his words, the Kyrie 2 Red Velvets are so da sexy tiiime!
2. Kyrachie (Don)
The Kyrachie is a throwback colorway to the original Nike Huarache, which was an important shoe for sneaker culture. The colors are pretty dope, it seems like a random combination of colors, but it works.
1. Kyrachie (Sammy)
Sammy thinks these are sick, and he is probably right.
1. Triple Black (Don)
Did you really think it would be anything else?
