Nike and Jordan Brand’s “Green Glow” craze ruled 2013. The minty fresh shade was found as an accent color on countless models and now Nike Basketball is bringing it back in a surprising move atop the upcoming Nike Kyrie 2. Kyrie is yet to appear in a game for the Cavaliers this season and hasn’t even resumed full practice activities, but he’ll be back sooner than later. Expect his Kyrie 2 “Green Glow” to make an appearance on-court once he’s back. The Kyrie 2 features an inverted strap similar to Leo Chang’s famed KD 4 creation while a bolstered mesh and fuse base makes for a sleek design atop this mid-top. Kyrie’s motto of “Just Be You” is inscribed as JBY on the inner tongue below his signature on each pair. The black base exudes some added vibrancy thanks to an underlying Green Glow shade to match the unique midsole and outsole.
A black base serves as the perfect backdrop for green glow details on this version of the strapped mid-top. The vibrant hue is visible on the logo hits, an underlay beneath the mesh and the outsole., the shoe sports a black mesh upper with vibrant mint green shining out from the under-layer. Solid-black dulls down the look a bit on the strap and collar, offset by solid-mint shining off the outsole. It’s not exactly a Cavs colorway, but it’ll work.
