Kyrie Irving’s debut Nike shoe, the Kyrie 1, had some pretty outstanding colorways, but few of them captured the attention of sneakerheads like the super-limited “Uncle Drew” make up. Just 150 pairs were produced, and the only way to get your hands on one of them was through a Pepsi contest last November. Now, the winners are beginning to receive their shipments and promptly listing them on eBay. While that’s to be expected, the real surprise is how much cash the kicks are raking in.
We spotted one “Uncle Drew” Kyrie 1 auction that ended earlier today for — wait for it — $8,000. As of publishing, there’s also pairs sitting at$7,000, $6,060, and $6,000, all of which are likely to rise as the time begins to wind down. So, if you’re hoping to lock down the rarest Kyrie Irving sneakers yet, you know what to do.
