Unlike the one-time NBA champion behind the sneaker, the Nike Kyrie 6 is not welcoming the last month of the decade on the sidelines, as it is dropping in yet another concept-driven colorway dubbed the “Kyrie 6 Enlightenment” edition. Outfitted in a dark-purple engineered mesh and suede upper, this latest iteration of Irving’s sixth signature sneaker with the Swoosh presents the heel eye graphic in a gum-pink color, making the symbol more visible at different angles to toy with the idea of perspective. The hits of yellow, red, green, and blue found on the tongue logo, lace holders, and outsole are inspired by camera light filters used to change images and films, and thus alter perception.
The colorway stories continue on the Kyrie 6 signature shoe as Nike officially unveils the “Englightenment” edition. Dressed in a dark purple engineered mesh and suede upper, this latest styling of Irving’s new model is inspired by the idea of perspective as the carved jewel piece that houses the seeing eye is more visible in certain angles. A mix of accent colors in red, green, blue, and yellow decorate the tongue logo, exterior stitchings, and outsole, but actually serve to represent camera light filters. Not one to leave any shoe release without a story, Nike Basketball will drop this Kyrie 6 shoe on December 7th at the retailers listed belowwww.kyrie6preheat.com.
