The Bandulu x Nike Kyrie 5 EP “Red Sole” is a special collaboration between the vintage repurposing, DIY-inspired streetwear brand and Nike Basketball on Kyrie Irving’s fifth signature model. Bandulu, known for their re-engineering of throwback sportswear that has been spotted on the backs of a who’s-who of A-list celebrities, applies their eccentric craft to the Kyrie 5. The upper of the design is composed of a pale ivory mesh base with contrasting paint splatters applied liberally to the midfoot that drip down to partly cover the white Swoosh. More paint splatters cover the toe, ankle collar, and heel with a mini white Swoosh embroidered on the toe. Unique detailing includes a large Venus flytrap lacing system that spans across the midfoot with hand-scribbled embroidery appearing on the heels as “Nike Basketball” covers the left shoe and “Bandulu Street Culture” appears on the right shoe. Completing the look of the design is an olive mesh tongue with a sail midsole and vibrant red outsole. The Bandulu x Nike Kyrie 5 EP “Red Sole” was released on July 27th, 2019.
