The NBA regular season is here and LeBron James and Kyrie Irving showed the league that they’re already in mid-season form by routing the Knicks in a blowout win after holding up their championship rings for the world to see. If you were watching last night, you might’ve noticed the entire Cavaliers starting-5 rocking ominous dark grey sneakers, as they were apart of Nike Basketball’s larger “Battle Grey” Collection slated to arrive this Saturday, October 29th.
LeBron wasn’t going to disappoint in the first game of the season, as he slammed home 6 dunks and eased his way to a triple-double in 3 quarters while wearing the Metallic Gold-accented Nike LeBron Soldier 10. The laceless design benefits from a bold Battle Grey upper with speckling found on the three straps and midsole. An icy outsole rounds out this LeBron Soldier 10 with a simple, understated finish.
Kevin Durant’s regular season debut might not have gone according to plan as the Warriors were beaten at home by the San Antonio Spurs last night. That didn’t stop KD from still finishing with 27 points and 10 rebounds while lacing up the Nike KD 9 “Battle Grey”. The premium Flyknit upper uses dark shades of Wolf Grey and Anthracite to its advantage for a tonal, clean look.
Kyrie showcased that he’s one of the best scorers in the game against the New York Knicks while wearing the Nike Kyrie 2 “Battle Grey”. Irving made things look easy and stylish as usual, as his second singature features a lighter shade than the other models in Nike Basketball’s Battle Grey Collection, but does get hints of Metallic Gold throughout in honor of his first championship.
