The Nike Kyrie 4’s perfect fit to the Boston Celtics star’s game is thanks to a rigorous design process by Benjamin Nethongkome, who studied Irving’s game to find out what he truly needed from his shoe. One major result of this process was the development of a split outsole to best enable Kyrie’s quick-cut and explosive abilities; this detail can be seen in the purple jagged line that splits the white outsole of the Kyrie 4 “Black/White”. This new colorway keeps a clean look with a black upper of mesh and suede and subtle purple and aqua detailing on the tongue and midsole speckling, a potential nod to classic Air Jordan models that helped inspire the shoe’s design.
