The Kyrie 2 "What The" is Kyrie Irving's second signature shoe with Nike. As it turns out, there are two different versions: the minty green glow pair and the milky white version that Nike revealed a while ago as part of the 12 Soles collection.

Leo Chang, Nike's design director, comments that the for the latest iteration of "What The," Nike wanted to do something that no sneaker customizer can do. While keeping the colors monotone and simple and the Hyperfuse Construction features, Nike chose to give the shoe 3-D flair by carrying on details of past Kyrie 2 releases. Case in point are lthe chenille swoosh on the midsole, the "ice monster" strap, and the two mid-foot straps with mismatched designs.

Nike Kyrie 2 "What The" Release Date

"What The" Nike Kyrie 2 is set to release at select Nike Basketball merchants on December 12, 2016 in both shades. Retail price will be $120, says SneakerFiles. While the monochromatic green pair will be a global release, the milky white version is limited to North America, so Kyrie fans have two options to hunt after before the Kyrie 3 comes into play.

Kyrie "Uncle Drew" Irving's second signature shoe will forever be one to remember. Not only did Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers reach new heights in the Kyrie 2, he also went on to capture his first-ever ring in outstanding fashion. The new "What the" Kyrie 2 conveys every story from the memorable season, outfitted in three-dimensional elements that affirm to each magic moment.
