The Nike Kyrie 4 “Year of the Monkey” is a performance basketball shoe that celebrates NBA star Kyrie Irving. Inspired by the Chinese zodiac calendar, the Kyrie 4 celebrates the year 1992 when Irving was born. The shoe features a black upper with mesh on the midfoot and toe box and an embossed synthetic material towards the back. Bright colors accent the outsole and the midsole teeth. Special monkey graphics on the tongue — red on the right and blue on the left — bring the look together.
