Kyrie 2 Red And Black
Nike Kyrie 2 “Red Velvet” Colorway Announced
If you are looking for a sneaker that offers an interesting mid-top silhouette, Nike’s new Kyrie 2 is for you. The shoe features a sleek, rounded outsole that provides smooth lateral transitions, and an innovative, Hyperfuse-constructed upper that offers breathability and support. Among the shoe’s many features is a full-length, hex-shaped Zoom Air unit that is positioned in the heel for effective impact protection during deceleration.
While the Kyrie 2 isn’t quite as flashy as its predecessor, it does sport the same high-tech design, which means it’s more affordable and easier to track down. With a price tag of under $100, it’s a great choice for those who aren’t willing to fork out a ton of money on a signature shoe. In fact, the shoes are available for customization on NikeiD.
For starters, the “Red Velvet” colorway is inspired by the dessert that supposedly contains red velvet. It features a red and black colour scheme, along with a velvety finish and a few other secondary tones. The shoe is accompanied by a tonal Swoosh that sports reflective detailing.
However, the most impressive feature of the “Red Velvet” colorway lies in the shoe’s hyperfuse construction. The shoe features molded channels that offer support, breathability, and lockdown. A special elastic bungee band also adorns the tongue, which is designed to hold the foot securely in place. This design feature is reminiscent of the Flytrap 1, which also features an inflated, hex-shaped Zoom Air unit for effective impact protection during deceleration.
Along with the Hyperfuse-constructed upper, the shoe also boasts an impressive 360-degree traction pattern in the sole. While the shoe doesn’t necessarily have a new trick up its sleeve, its “smooth as silk” curved outsole has the potential to become a new standard.
Although it’s not available in the United States, the ‘Red Velvet’ colourway is scheduled to make its way to select Swoosh retailers worldwide in the coming weeks. According to sources, it will be priced at around $120. As you might expect, the shoe will have a few other perks, such as a unique mid-foot strap that offers a similar “V-shaped” look to the original model. Combined with the newest and most responsive cushioning, the new pair of Kyrie cleats should help the Cavaliers to a victory. Whether you’re a diehard fan of the Cavaliers or a basketball enthusiast, the Kyrie 2 can be a worthwhile investment. Just make sure you do your research before making a purchase. Also, keep an eye out for more colorways of the “Red Velvet” shoe to appear in the coming months.
Lastly, the “Red Velvet” colourway has the honor of being the first to use the brand new Hyperfuse-constructed upper. The ‘Red Velvet’ is an excellent example of how to re-imagine the traditional basketball footwear and improve the overall experience for athletes and fans alike.
