Don’t reach, youngblood.
The “Uncle Drew” video series has been a favorite here at KicksOneTwo, so it’s pretty obvious that we were excited to see Pepsi team up with Nike to make the Kyrie 1 “Uncle Drew” sneaker. Overall, it’s a dope, very clean sneaker. You can never go wrong with an all white upper and a gum sole. Add onto that hints of red and blue, and Uncle Drew detailing — flames all around.
However, once I saw the whole special packaging that came with the shoes, I was instantly sold. I need this set for real.
As you can see in the picture above, the entire package comes with a metal locker filled with various Uncle Drew and Pepsi themed magnets. On the bottom of the locker, the shoes are strapped down, and a special Uncle Drew hoodie and bobble-head are placed above.
This whole package really is one of the ultimate collectibles for me. A dope, limited pair of one of my favorite player’s sneakers in a sweet package with a metal locker, hoodie, and bobble-head inspired by one of my favorite video series sponsored by one of my favorite carbonated beverages? C’mon. son. It really doesn’t get much better than this.
Since this set is limited to 150, the odds here are against all of us. However, Pepsi is giving away five sets every week for the next three weeks via their Pepsi Pass app. So, albeit small, there is still a chance! You can download the app here.
So, for those of you out there that know someone working at Pepsi that could pull some strings and get me a pair, I’ll take a 10.5.
Pepsi, if you’re reading this, I’m willing to sell out for this package. I’ll push Pepsi all day long if you want me to. People won’t ever see me without a crisp bottle of Pepsi in my hands. (I’d be willing to give up Voss here). Just hit me up, and we’ll work something out.
