Kyrie Irvingsays he NEVER should’ve publicly bashed Nike over the “trash” Kyrie 8s … saying he’s working with the Swoosh to fix the problem ASAP.
Of course, Irving blasted the sneaker giant after pics of his next signature shoe leaked on social media … saying he hated the way they looked and he had nothing to do with their creation.
Now, Irving’s clearly had a change of heart … admitting he should’ve handled the whole situation differently.
“When you’re building something great, there sometimes comes a point when you need to recalibrate and refocus to ensure everyone involved is aligned. This is where the KAI11 brand and Nike are,” Irving told Shams Charania.
“It was unfair to put the blame on Nike or any one person. With that being said, we are diligently working, restructuring, and reimagining things together to make sure we get it right.”
It’s unclear if anything will change on the Kyrie 8 … or if this will delay the drop.
But, here’s hoping they can make at least some changes …
