In addition to the many Kobes and KDs that Luka Doncic wore for his rookie year, the Mavericks guard also rocked a handful of Kyrie 4 colorways.
This style is known for it’s biting traction, as is the case for most Kyrie sneakers. The tread rides up the lateral midsole, providing a teeth design of sorts. Aside from the aesthetics, this feature helps players like Luka have more balance when performing crossovers. The Kyrie 4 also boasts improved cushioning with the softer Cushion foam used instead of Phylon. Mesh was utilized in the toe section of the upper, while suede or leather is used on the heel sections.
The sneaker was notably worn by Kyrie Irving, Jayson Tatum, as well as Zion Williamson in his time at Duke. Luka rocked simple colorways like the black/white (found HERE) and colorful options like the “Red Carpet” (found HERE.)
