Kyrie Irving was not able to play (injury) during opening night of the brand new NBA season, but that doesn’t mean that Nike can’t come out with an “Opening Night” colorway of the Nike Kyrie 1. He may not be able to wear it, but you sure will.

The Nike Kyrie 1 “Opening Night” comes in a predominantly white upper with hits of silver appearing on the midsole and heel of the shoe. Contrasting the look of the upper are the red accents found on the Nike Swoosh on the side panels, as well as the Kyrie branding found on the insole and inside of the tongue. The tongue has unique branding as they both come rockin’ metal looking coins, one with Kyrie’s face on it, and the other with Kyrie’s logo on it. Said to be releasing in China beginning November 11th, we will let you know if and when these release stateside.

This may very well be one of the my most favorite colorways of the Nike Kyrie 1. Although we may not see him wearing this colorway, since he’ll probably be wearing the Kyrie 2 by the time he comes back, it’s still cool of Nike to give Kyrie his very own “Opening” night shoe.
