Designed for Kyrie Irving's creative and unpredictable game, the Kyrie 6 focuses on comfort, control and energy return to help him go fast and stay fresh. Bouncy cushioning is paired with soft yet supportive foam for responsiveness and smooth heel-to-toe transitions, while the midfoot strap and plush, padded collar lock him in and help keep him a step ahead of the competition. 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.

Nike was founded in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports and initially operated as a reseller for the Japanese company Onitsuka Tiger - now known as Asics. Although created by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight, Jeff Johnson was the one who inspired the Nike name from the Greek statue, "The Victory of Samothrace." The first shoe was created in 1974 and was a '' Nike Waffle Trainer '' and after a few years of success, the successful Nike Swoosh collection went to the top. In 1988, Nike made a debut with a strong campaign, the "Just Do It" series, taking the company to the top of sportswear where they stayed forever!
