the retailer offers a look at an upcoming mother-themed Nike Kyrie 3 project. The highly detailed sneaker features rose petal embroidery, glossy lateral branding, a leather tongue, polka dot interior, a gift-style tag and translucent sole. Additionally, the Kyrie logo on the tongue has been replaced with a new “MOM” logo.
PS:About Sneaker Room x Nike Kyrie 3 ‘Mom’ Shoes
When thinking about designing a Kyrie, Sneaker Room owner Suraj Kuafman wanted to do something that was true to both his and Kyrie’s journey. They both lost their mom’s and wanted to create something special to honor their memory. Knowing that Suraj’s mother favorite color was gold, he wanted to incorporate that color. Creating the Rose symbol on the upper ankle area to represent the roses many people often purchase for their moms as a sign of love. When searching for photos of Kyrie’s mother, one special photo stood out the most of her wearing a polka dot shirt. You can spot the polka dots on the inner lining of the shoe. Sneaker Room creative director, Jeff Rose, came up with the idea to change the logo on the tongue to display the word “MOM” in the same logo style font, as well as the signature on the back being removed and replaced with the initials E.K. for Ellen Kaufman and E.I. for Elizabeth Irving. On the right insole you can find the Sneaker Room logo, and the left insole has a special message “I love you Mom.” Finishing details include a speckled midsole, a heart pattern throughout the entire sole, and the word “LOVE” all over the inner swoosh.
