8.31 KD Blog

KD’s jumper is smooth as velvet, so dropping the KD X in a ‘Red Velvet’ colorway was the perfect way for Nike to celebrate KD’s first championship and the sweet taste of victory. The KD X ‘Red Velvet’ comes with a mouth-watering red and black colorway with a white speckled midsole finishing off the look. The KD X is focused on top-tier performance on the court, and a colorway that looks this good is definitely icing on the cake. Men’s $149.99. Grade School $124.99.

NIKE KYRIE 3 ‘KYRACHE LIGHT’ – SEPT. 1 AT 1O AM ET

8.31 Kyrie 3 Blog

Last year, Nike dropped a Kyrie 2 colorway inspired by the original Nike Air Flight Huarache, and now the Swoosh is back with a similar theme. The Kyrie 3 ‘Kyrache Light’ takes inspiration from 1993’s Air Huarache Light with a mix of black, red, purple, and teal colors. Old school Nike fans and Kyrie Irving fans should all be hyped for this fresh release. Men’s $119.99, Grade School $99.99.
