4. Kyrie 4 “ASG”
This version of Kyrie’s latest shoe is a tribute to Venice Beach as you may be able to notice because of the bright colors. The shoe was originally be called the Kyrie 4 “Tie-Dye” due to the upper design of the shoe but is was later revealed to be Irving’s shoes for the All-Star game. The insoles feature two different drawings of the city.
Besides the black and white tie-dye there are flashes of pink, purple and teal throughout the shoe.
The All-Star game has become a big deal for sneaker companies and their athletes. It is a battle to see who will have the best design and a big money-making opportunity. All the brand’s athletes usually participate in events around the All-Star game to advertise the sneakers. Some sneakers even exclusively release in the location of the All-Star game. If you aren’t at the location of the game you may be paying a 50% markup or more trying to get the exclusive shoes online from a reseller.
