Kyrie Irving and Team USA are only two wins away from capturing the highly coveted gold medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. With the semifinal game against Spain taking place tomorrow, USA hope to come out on top and play in the gold medal game on Sunday.
Kyrie Irving and Nike hope that Team USA proves to the world that they have assembled the best team in the world by winning the gold medal. The day after the gold medal game Nike will be releasing Gold Medal colorway of the Kyrie 2, KD 9, and LeBron Zoom Soldier 10 in what they hope will be celebratory colorways. Here are official pictures of the Nike Kyrie 2 Gold Medal which is completely covered in University Red on the entire upper with the only contrast being hits of Metallic Gold that can be seen on the upper eyelets, and the Nike and Kyrie Irving branding on the midsole, strap, tongue, and heel.
The Nike Kyrie 2 Gold Medal will arrive at retailers on August 22nd for a retail price of $140.
This shoe could have looked much better if there was some contrast added perhaps some blue or white. It pretty much looks like an all-red shoe. Not a fan.
