For the fourth time, Sneaker Room and NBA star Kyrie Irving have teamed up to create a “Mom” collection, but this time the storytelling is a little different.
For the collection – which features new iterations of the Nike Kyrie 7 – Sneaker Room owner Suraj Kaufman and the baller shared the stories of their late mothers. The new wrinkle in history, Sneaker Room said, is the desire to honor all mothers with kicks, including Mother Earth.
For both iterations of the Nike Kyrie 7 “Mom” in the collection, Sneaker Room and Irving highlighted the four elements of nature: earth, fire, water and air. The sneakers will be available in two colorways, “Green/Yellow” and “Blue/Orange”, and will feature Basketball Bedroom Foundation logo and signature “Mom” logo on lace closures. Additionally, hearts will appear on the upper Swoosh branding, a special message will appear inside each shoe, and there is a place for the wearer to fill in the blank after “In Honor Of” on the heel.
Sneaker Room will release 1,996 pairs of the “green/yellow” colorway, which the retailer says represents the year Kyrie Irving‘s mother Elizabeth Irving passed away, and 525 pairs of the “blue/orange” look will release to honor Suraj Kaufman. his late mother, Ellen Kaufman.
The release also has a charity component and Sneaker Room has confirmed that 100% of the proceeds will be donated. Past collections have helped fund after-school and summer programs, the purchase of Giraffe Incubator Carestations for Jersey City Medical Center’s Newborn Intensive Care Unit, the establishment of a food pharmacy for those in food insecurity and several projects with the Boys & Girls Club of Hudson.

The “Mom” Collection will arrive January 20 at 10 a.m. ET via Snkrroom.comwith the “Green/Yellow” colorway priced at $175 and the “Blue/Orange” look at $250.
