Kyrie Irving ANTA KAI 1 Signature Sneakers Release March 6


Dallas Mavericks star Kyrie Irving’s new ANTA KAI 1 “Artist On Court” signature sneakers will release next week for consumers to purchase. The KAI 1 is his first signature sneaker since his split with Nike.

The ANTA kicks will release Wednesday, March 6 through ANTA’s website and via an in-store event at Sneaker Politics in Dallas. ANTA and the eight-time NBA All-Star made the official announcement on Tuesday.

Following a special release at Nice Kicks in San Francisco on Saturday, March 9, the shoes will hit the shelves at various select retail stores.

The Chinese apparel company revealed the purple-colored kicks about eight months after Irving signed a five-year sneaker contract in July 2023. The kicks will be available to buy at retail stores for $125.

Furthermore, the design is a nod to Kyrie’s “slick, gravity-defying transitions and crossovers,” ANTA said, and the colors represent his Native American roots.

“As Chief Creative Officer and a player, I’ve woven the essence of my heritage and my heart for basketball into the design of ANTA KAI 1,” Irving said of the new shoes.

“This is more than a shoe; it embodies our ancestors’ strength and the future we’re building. Every detail, from the hieroglyphics to the aerodynamic shape, tells the story of where we’ve been and where we’re going.”
