Sue Bird's 'Keep Sue Fresh' Nike Kyrie 5s Are Coming

It’s no secret that Kyrie Irving has a certain respect for the 3 time WNBA champion Sue Bird, one of the the greatest point guards to ever play.

Kyrie gifted a pair of Nike Kyrie 5s, a unique pair that he called the “Keep Sue Fresh.” The nickname comes from a conversation where Irving told Nike to make sure Bird always had a fresh pair of his signature sneaker.

A picture was leaked that might mean that a release is near, so now they will be available to the public, but with one catch, the first release might only be in gradeschool sizes. There are also some differences, like no translucent sole. 

No official release date has been announced, but stay tuned.
