Kyrie Irving’s New Shoes Earn Mixed Reaction (Photos)

Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving is obviously in a state of flux as far as his NBA future goes.

And things aren’t faring much better for him off the court.

Irving and Nike appear to be reaching the end of their partnership together, and their final offering has garnered something of a mixed reaction from fans.

Photos of Irving’s new shoe came out online this week:

With social media being what it is nowadays, reactions were deeply polarized:

Shoe stuff aside, it will be interesting to see how things fare for Irving going forward. A general framework for a deal that would send him from the Nets to the Los Angeles Lakers emerged recently.

Unfortunately, two players continue to hold the proceedings up. The Lakers’ final trade offer for Irving leaked out a week or so ago, and it simply wasn’t enough.

At the moment, it looks like Irving will start the 2022-23 season as a member of the Nets.

With whom will he end it, though?

Time will tell.
