Since 2017, the Sneaker Room boutique in Jersey City and Kyrie Irving have collaborated on annual “I Love You Mom” editions of Nike Kyries to honour both Suraj Kaufman and Kyrie Irving’s late mothers.
They’re set to release their fourth “I Love You Mom” collaboration in 2022 in honour of Kyrie Irving’s mother Elizabeth and Suraj Kaufman’s mother Ellen, which will feature a new mismatched colorway for the Nike Kyrie 7.
“We wanted to elevate it this year,” Kaufman explains. “As a half-Native American who has made significant contributions to Standing Rock, the tribe to which his mother belonged, Kyrie and I were discussing mothers and how we become: Mother Nature. Mother Earth. Consider that aspect and refrain from being overly symbolic with a red heart or gold if that is the gift you intend to give. Allow us to establish contact with the elements.”
Profits from the launches benefited a network of community programmes and organisations throughout New Jersey, as well as the Jersey City Medical Center. Over the next few years, it is anticipated that over $500,000 will be raised through all of the launches.
