Nike is excited to unveil Nick Kyrgios’ head to toe kit before the tennis star takes to court tonight.
His look involves a collaboration with NBA point guard Kyrie Irving, which saw the creation of the Nike Vapor X ‘KYRIE 5’. Kyrgios will debut this hybrid of the Vapor X tennis shoe and Kyrie 5 basketball shoe this week and will be wearing them exclusively.
In honour of the collaboration and the high esteem both athletes have for each other, Irving debuted the basketball iteration with the Kyrie x Vapor 5 (based on Kyrgios’ Vapor) last Tuesday scoring 17 points to lead the Celtics to victory over the Nets.
The rest of Kyrgios’ look this summer will be from the 2019 Nike Melbourne collection, which is inspired by 90s colour blocking and a wave of NikeCourt heritage embroidery.
Please see below for detailed information on Kyrgios’ kit, which is available on Nike.com.au and at select retailers.
