Kyrie Irving’s future with the Brooklyn Nets and Nike has never been tense. However, Irving’s dedication to his community remains stronger than ever. For the past few days, the perennial All-Star has been hosting a community event called “More Than A Run.”
The festivities took place at Kean University in Union, New Jersey. “More Than A Run” featured individual contests and an all-star match. Much to the delight of the crowd, Irving and a few of his Nets teammates even got in on the action.
When it was Irving’s turn to hoop, he wore a pair of Nike Kyrie 5 sneakers. Unfortunately for fans, the exact colorway is a PE (player exclusive) and virtually impossible to obtain. The shoes were green and white with a gold Swoosh logo.
It’s safe to say that Irving wore the shoes as a nod to his alma mater, the St. Patrick Celtics, and not his former team, the Boston Celtics.
When the perennial All-Star was not participating, he remained active throughout the event. On day one, Irving wore a pair of Nike Air Yeezy sneakers — the same kicks he wore in a WNBA game earlier this summer.

Yesterday, Irving kept it simple with a pair of Air Jordan 1 sneakers in the classic red and black colourway, affectionately known as the ‘Breds’. Jordans resale for around $500, while Yeezy sneakers easily go into five figures online.
Irving is a fascinating person with incredible talent. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for his relationship with the Nets and Nike. Stay locked in FanNation Kicks for the latest news, updates, and interviews.
