We’re only months away from the start of the 2021-2022 season, and that means we’re closer to seeing some of the newest signature shoes from the brands and their marquee players. While leaks always seem to make headlines during the summer, Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving weighed in on the alleged leak of his eighth signature shoe.

The Nets guard responded to an Instagram leak of the upcoming silhouette with some strong words.

Irving’s reactions appear to be towards the unauthorized leak but perhaps Irving has seen the final shoe. In addition to his comments, industry insider Nate Jones shared that the comments are just another part of Kyrie’s ongoing contract disputes with the Swoosh.

No word yet on when his Nike deal is set to expire but headlines like this show up like clockwork when negotiations are not going smoothly. Stay tuned to SoleSavy as we continue to follow the story of the Kyrie 8 and Irving’s relationship with Nike.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
