The Nike Kyrie 5 Aims to ‘Keep Sue Fresh’
Release: TBC

The story goes Kyrie Irving once requested that Nike kept WNBA superstar Sue Bird well stocked with pairs of his signature line, uttering the words ‘Keep Sue fresh’. The Swoosh have reportedly held good on that directive ever since, but have now taken it one step further – dressing the Kyrie 5 especially for Sue, right down to adding Kyrie’s words to the heel.

In fact, the design is covered in words, all scrawled across the upper in a mixture of greys, reds and yellows. At this stage the general release will only be available in grade school sizes, but we’re hoping for a full size range in the near future.
