Kyrie Irving is joining some select company with the introduction of a signature shoe from Nike.

Nike hasn't created a signature shoe for a basketball player since Kevin Durant in 2007. For Irving, it developed the Kyrie 1, which will be released to the public Dec. 23 and retails for $110.

Irving is the 20th basketball player to earn a signature shoe from Nike. Michael Jordan was the first in 1985. As part of the Kyrie 1's official unveiling, Nike trotted out some of the others to talk about earning this distinction, including Charles Barkley and Penny Hardaway. Here's some video of the special occasion with Kenny Smith serving as the event's host:
