The Chinese zodiac calendar may say that 2018 is the year of the dog, but that isn’t stopping Nike from releasing a “Year Of The Monkey” Kyrie 4, paying homage to Kyrie Irving‘s birth year, 1992 (which was indeed a “year of the monkey”) and his birthday, which was on on March 23rd. The shoe features a black upper with two different materials: a fancy, embossed zodiac pattern with a rough-hewn swoosh on the heel and collar, and a toned-down mesh on the midfoot and toebox. The shoe also features contrasting monkey logos on the tongue, red on the right and blue on the left as well as multi-colored design also celebrating the year of the monkey on the outsole. This Kyrie 4 will be available April 4th from Nike.com, and will retail at $120 USD.
Update: Now available on Nikestore.
