The Nike Kyrie 6 ‘Shot Clock’ replicates digitized lettering to spell out ‘ELEVEN’ on the sneaker’s black synthetic upper. The number is personally significant to Kyrie Irving, as it represents his jersey number, his father’s favorite number, the number of games he played at Duke and the number of letters in his name. Additional embellishments include an iridescent Swoosh and contrast stitching on the sneaker’s black mesh forefoot.
The Nike Air Zoom Turbo unit under the ball of the foot is curved, so it engages underfoot and when you push off your edges. The lightweight foam midsole is soft, supportive, and helps to smooth the heel-to-toe transition.
An adjustable strap crosses over the laces to keep your foot stable over the footbed. The padded collar and heel counter lock in your ankle and help keep it aligned with your foot, so you can generate energy while making hard cuts.
A multi-angle blade pattern is designed to grip the court in all directions. Grippy material extends up the sidewall, giving you the traction to roll onto your edges and quickly move this way or that.
Plush, padded collar gives you a secure, ankle-conforming fit.
