When you’re a Nike-sponsored college athletics program, you receive certain perks with that status. When you’re Duke, one of the top college basketball programs in the country for what feels like 100 years running, you get your own freaking shoe.
The Blue Devils will step onto the court for Senior Night tonight against Florida State rocking a special, Duke-themed version of the Nike Kyrie 3. Wrapped in blue and sporting the letters “DU” on the left heal and “KE” on the right, the custom Kyrie 3s pay homage to both the present and the past, as Kyrie Irving spent his only season of college hoops running the point in Durham.
All three of Irving’s signature sneakers have been given their own Duke-themed colorway just before the NCAA tournament. You can get your hands on a pair of the Kyrie 3 “Duke” shoes when they release to the general public on March 10.
