The History Of The Nike Kyrie 2

Many believe, me included, that Kyrie Irving is the greatest ball handler of all time. His dribbling is at times mesmerizing. When the Kyrie 2 was released in 2015 it was tailored made to fit the ball handling skills of Irving.


The Nike Kyrie II was designed to fit the quickness, and rapid fire moves on the basketball court, of the great Kyrie Irving. The curved sole and Zoom Air are present in the shoe for the Point Guard’s quick movements. The strap is placed to keep the heel in place. The II, like the I, was designed by Leo Chang. My favorite Kyrie 2 is the “Ky-Rispy Kreme” (2016). Kyrie Irving had a love of donuts, like we all do, especially Krispy Kreme donuts. Nike celebrated his obsession with the Nike Kyrie “Ky-Rispy Kreme.” The shoe featured a color makeup that replicated the colors of the Krispy Kreme logo. The shoes also came in special packaging that mirrors the way Krispy Kreme packages its donuts.


Kyrie Irving was born in Australia in 1992. He was a standout player in high school. Irving played high school basketball in New Jersey. He could score, practically at will. His handles and understanding of the game were strong at an early age.

Blue Devil

He was so impressive that he caught the attention of one of the most prestigious programs in all of College Basketball, the Duke Blue Devils. Irving would play for the top coach in college basketball history, Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski. Irving was only able to play 11 games in his single season for Duke due to injury. Even though he was not on the court very much, NBA scouts knew he was ready for the pro game.

Number 1

Kyrie Irving would be selected with the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. He would be chosen by the Cleveland Cavaliers. His first few years in Cleveland were not successful, in terms of team success. Irving also struggled with injuries at the start of his career. But his talent was unquestionable.
