Kyrie Irving’s Nike Kyrie 8 Removed From Stores

The Kyrie Irving controversy continues. After his suspension for promoting an antisemitic documentary and subsequently having his upcoming Kyrie 8 sneaker canceled by the Swoosh, it looks like Nike is intent on pulling Kyrie’s sneakers from the shelves. A series of emails from Nike instructing retailers to remove Kyrie’s sneakers from displays have surfaced.  The email specifically refers to the Kyrie 8 and states that “all other Kyrie products can continue to be sold until further notice.”

After a long-standing bout with Nike that began with Kyrie’s dislike of the Kyrie Infinity, it looks like Irving’s days as a member of the Nike family are coming to a close. It has been widely rumored that the Kyrie 8 would be Kyrie’s final silhouette with the brand and in the wake of his controversial actions, it seems that rumors are true. Kyrie has had a signature sneaker with Nike since 2014.

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
