Kyrie Irving's Nike Hyperdunk gets released.

Nike has released the personalized hyperdunk sneaker of  Kyrie Irving over the weekend. It’s common for athletes to get a custom made sneaker for themselves, but it’s rare for them to be released to the public.

Nike gave details about the design process:

“Irving’s past and future is the main theme of Irving’s 2013 Hyperdunk as told through color and material. Born in Melbourne, Australia, where his father, Drederick, played professional basketball, Irving is proud of his roots. The green-toned teal and volt colorway is a futuristic take on Australia’s National basketball team colorway of green and yellow.  Featured on the tongue and lining is a “wave” graphic that depicts the story of his travels overseas from Melbourne to New Jersey.

“From a design standpoint, Nike used inspiration from Irving’s off-court style highlighted by his admiration for rich, rustic materials with a modern flair. That insight is excentuated in the upper through a contemporary texture with a subtle metallic finish.”

The starting price for these sneakers are $140.
