These charcoal-colored sneakers serve as a nod to the many hours spent by aspiring athletes playing driveway basketball in their front yards. Shooting hoops over and over into late night hours, basketball player Kyrie Irving reminisced on his childhood and decided to create a pair of sneakers that serve as a reminder to this influential time.

The Nike and Kyrie Irving collaboration sneakers have a gritted body with a mesh material covering the shoe, giving them a modern look. With a zigzag gripped bottom and protruding studded-like material on their backs, the shoes have a fierce look to them.

Finally, to complete the sneakers, Nike's Green Glow decals and the brand's Reflect Silver Swoosh represent the car headlights needed to light up such late night driveway basketball games.
