Lately Nike has seemed determined to stir up indignation in as many people as possible. First their deplorable handling of the Kobe releaseso lead to the partnership with the Bryant estate and drew the ire of sneaker and Kobe fans in general. Sneaker enthusiasts overall have been less than happy with the company as they routinely strike out on obtaining new releases.
Now we can add Kyrie Irving to the list of people that Nike has pissed off.
K11Kicks, the self-described “#1 Kyrie Kicks acc” on Instagram, posted images of the upcoming Kyrie 8, the next model in Irving’s signature line. Kyrie himself hopped in the comment section and lambasted Nike, intimating that he had nothing to do with the design of the sneaker, calling them “trash.”
There has been no comment from Nike , as of yet, regarding Kyrie’s comments.
