We’ve been hearing and seeing rumblings of the return of Kyrie Irving’s fictional character Uncle Drew in the last few days. Just yesterday Pepsi and Kyrie Uncle Drew released a commercial hinting at his return on Thursday.

Now today images began surfacing of a collaboration between Uncle Drew (Nike) and Pepsi. Certain people have been receiving a special “Uncle Drew” version of the Nike Kyrie 1 that comes in some pretty amazing packaging as you can see above. The shoes are believed to be limited to 150 pairs and come in a locker with a bunch of other goodies including an Uncle Drew bobblehead and a Pepsi x Uncle Drew hoodie.

However, this isn’t the first time we see this sneaker as Kyrie 1 afficionado @tmarkgotkickss already was seen with a pair. What are your thoughts on the Pepsi x Nike Kyrie 1 Uncle Drew? Would you like to own a pair?

Author’s Take

It’s about time Uncle Drew got his own sneaker. Why is there only 150 pairs? Nike should have made these available to the public cause I’m sure people would have copped these for sure.
