Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving and Australian tennis pro Nick Kyrgios are pouring their shared Aussie roots into an ambitious sneaker crossover.
Both born in Australia, Irving and Kyrgios share a love for their heritage and a high esteem for one another.
The mutual respect inspired a collaborative project that will have Kyrgios wearing a Kyrie 5-inspired Vapor X shoe in the Aussie Open in Melbourne.
Irving already rocked his Vapor-inspired sneakers last Monday in the Celtics' 116-95 win over the Nets.
Kyrgios' low-cut tennis version features the Kyrie 5's iconic Flytrap-inspired upper for a lockdown fit and a Vapor X outsole.
The Nike Vapor X 'Kyrie 5' releases January 14.
