Nike has long been very creative in dreaming up new basketball shoes for its superstar endorsees, but it show's that there's no limit to its creativity with the Kyrie 1 Flytrap, a basketball shoe that is inspired by a plant. Not any regular, boring garden plant but the venus flytrap, a carnivorous plant that lies in wait before snatching up unsuspecting insects in brutal fashion.

The Kyrie 1 Flytrap emphasizes the parallels between the deadly plant and Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star Kyrie Irving. The point guard freezes opponents with his incredible ball handling, before striking with deceptive speed and brutal precision.

The Kyrie 1 Flytrap is a fantastic example of how creative, out-of-the-box thinking can yield products that are appealing without appearing to try too hard.
