Jordans 2017 will be doing something completely different when it comes to the upcoming What The colorway of the Nike Kyrie 2. For starters, we'll be seeing not one, but two different colorways release. The first is the tonal Green Glow and the second is this Sail pair. First, the shoe dons a monochromatic teal upper while standout features like a speckled midsole, mismatched patterns on the midfoot strap overlay, and that Huarache inspired Kyrie logo all make their way onto the What The Kyrie 2 from past standout releases. A unique swirling graphic lining contrasts the teal upper for a nice change of pace. With the green glow-colored pair offered to the rest of the world, this sail white rendition of the Nike Kyrie 2 What The is exclusive to North America only. Straying from its signature eccentric mashup of previous colorways, the silhouette dons a minimal tonal finish instead, while it features several of Kyrie's stories through unique 3-D textural graphics intricately molded onto its profile.
New Jordans 2016, Graphics seen throughout the Kyrie 2 series were brought to life all over the "What The" shoe, from the BHM edition to the Inferno iteration. "There's a graphic on the strap of the Inferno colorway, it's an image of Kyrie doing a crossover. We thought why don't we take where the ball would be in the image and turn that into the "Kyrache" logo and bring that back in," Khachatourian further explained. Now incorporating the familiar "Kyrache" logo, the new take on the Inferno graphic is molded into the heel of the "What The" Kyrie 2. Differentiating itself from prior "What The" releases, Nike decided to abandon the color mashup on the Kyrie 2 model and instead go with a material mash up. What do we mean? Well instead of combining together past colorways of the Kyrie 2, Nike decided to take a more monotone, sculptural, dimensional execution with very minimal color pops. The Nike team tells the story of the "What The" Kyrie 2 in a three dimensional fashion with textural graphics carefully molded on both shoes. This Sail colorway nods back to the debut "Dream" Kyrie 2, while the green glow edition acknowledges the "Kyrie-oke" edition.
New Air Jordan Shoes, Lego Chang was responsible for designing both the Kyrie 1 and Kyrie 2, which he constructed using Hyperfuse. Unlike its predecessor, the Kyrie 2 is also equipped with a cross strap that resembles that of the KD 4. Kyrie Irving's reigning signature model is set to receive the ever-eclectic "What The" treatment this December. Dropping as part of the 12 Soles Collection, it seems Nike are set to keep us guessing a little longer as to what exactly makes this release worthy of "What The" status. The two images that have been released so far feature monochromatic make-ups of the Kyrie 2 in both teal and off-white although, curiously, both images depict the left shoe. Nike wanted to do something that no sneaker customizer can do. While keeping the colors monotone and simple and the Hyperfuse Construction features, Nike chose to give the shoe 3-D flair by carrying on details of past Kyrie 2 releases. Case in point are lthe chenille swoosh on the midsole, the "ice monster" strap, and the two mid-foot straps with mismatched designs.
