Framed in Bass wood, this Tray in a Slipcase, or Drawer Box, style rigid box is a beautiful meditation in material; the heft of the natural wood imparts the gravity and singular nature of the shoe inside. The coordinated blue book cloth, imported from Italy, and the blue Oasis Goatskin from Great Britain stand out vibrantly against the gold metallic foil stamping of the logo trifecta: Kyrie Irving x Nike x Duke. A powerhouse collaboration. To drive it all home, the inside of the box is lined with genuine parquet basketball court flooring.
