First Look at the Nike Kyrie 4 “Year of the Monkey”

By Kara Straight  |  03/17/2018

Nike has released a "Year of the Monkey 4" edition of the Kyrie 4 in Hong Kong this week, just in time for Kyrie Irving's birthday.

The shoe is predominately black with a textured side panel, multicolored outsoles, and a monkey wrapped around Kyrie's logo on the tongue. "Year of the Monkey" is said to represent the Chinese zodiac during the year Kyrie was born, 1992.

Although already released in China, there is no set release date for the sneaker in the United States.

Kyrie does turn 26 on March 23, so we can hope to see it within the next week.
