Nike Kyrie 2 “Effect” will be officially launched today. With the release of Kyrie Irving’s signature shoes, it looks like sneaker fans will definitely have merry holidays this season.
According to Nike’s official website, Kyrie 2 “Effect” will be released on December 15, Tuesday at 10 AM EST. The signature shoe boasts a multi-color/sail-black combination. At a retail price of $120, it is expected that sneaker fans will flood Nike stores to purchase their own pair.
On the site, Nike wrote a short explanation behind the so-called “Kyrie Effect.” The launch of the newest pair of Nike shoes also marks the return of basketball player Kyrie Irving.
“Kyrie Irving’s destiny will not be written by anyone except himself. Using the ‘Kyrie Effect,’ a mathematical formula he discovered, Irving has mastered the ability to control his destiny and convert even the craziest of shots. The Kyrie Effect provides scientific evidence explaining how the point god, Kyrie, can make any shot fall.”

As mentioned on Sneaker News, Kyrie Irving will return to the Cleveland Cavaliers this week. And in celebration of his return, Nike ensured that his second signature shoe will be available in retail stores.
Once again, Leo Chang designed the pair which features hyper-fuse construction. Chang used a mid-top silhouette with an inverted strap to “rework Kyrie’s unique dribbling and cutting.”
According to the site, the outsole of Kyrie 2 is based on the basketball player’s “array of footwork.” Thus, it can be observed that there were multiple patterns which made up a traction system. The newest pair is said to be the first model which uses a cross strap.
Just like Kyrie Irving, Sneaker News noted that Kyrie 2 will begin a new chapter through its “Effect” colorway. On January 1, the “Inferno” colorway is expected to be launched.
