Brooklyn Nets stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving plan to collaborate on a Nike sneaker, according to a report by Stefan Bondy of New York Daily News.

The teammates went from a friendly competition to find out which signature shoe with Nike was best to decide on a collaboration.

“It kind of turned to, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if we collaborated on something together in the near future? “said Nike designer Ben Nethongkome, who worked with Irving on the Kyrie 7.” And at that point, KD was like, ‘Of course.’ So we’re excited to have some level of interaction between these two in terms of product creation in the near future. “

The idea of ​​a sneaker collaboration is perhaps a metaphor for the two working together as teammates on the pitch next season.

Nethongkome noted that this was factored into the design choices made for the Kyrie 7:

“Kyrie spoke last night about how his role on the Nets is a little different now because he has to facilitate for his players. He didn’t have a KD before, now he does. And so he doesn’t try. no one-on-one attacking. One more, he’s thinking of going around the guys to distribute the ball elsewhere. So his movement on the pitch is going to widen a lot more. And so with the 7 being lighter, he has. feels like it’s a lot easier on the pitch than the Kyrie 6 or Kyrie 5. So we’re excited to hear that. “

Expectations will be high on the pitch for the Brooklyn star duo over the next season. And now expectations will be high for their potential sneaker collaboration as well.
