Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are expected to collaborate on a new sneaker deal, per Stefan Bondy of the Daily News.
The two superstars of the Brooklyn Nets will collaborate with Nike in what is expected to be an exciting project.
“[Irving] was like, ‘Look at this heat I have in my hand.’ And there was some friendly competitiveness to them too, like, ‘Whose shoe is better?’
It kind of spawned into, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if we collaborated on something together in the near future?’ And right then and there, KD was like, ‘Of course.’ So we’re excited to have some level of interaction between those two in terms of product creation in the near future,” Ben Nethongkome, a Nike footwear designer, told Bondy.
It seems, though, the deal is still at its early stages and more details will be announced by Nike.
