Kyler Murray Returns in Korea-Inspired Nike Vapor Edge Dunk Lows

Kyler Murray

Nearly 12 months since tearing his ACL, Kyler Murray will make his return to the field in a custom pair of Nike Vapor Edge Dunk Lows.


The occasion, much like his career, is more than just about himself. Born to an African-American father and Korean-American mother, the Arizona Cardinals quarterback has always been a proud proponent of his Asian heritage — in a time when there is an alarming amount of hate crimes taking place within the US. “I’m proud to play with the flag of South Korea on my helmet,” he’s previously said. “It’s a great way to honor my mom, honor my heritage and highlight the diverse backgrounds that make up the NFL.”


Similar in color palette to the famed Ronaldinho “Touch of Gold” Tiempos, K1’s Vapor Edge Dunk Lows sport a white leather upper with melon green accents along the inner heel counter and tab, as well as a shiny rose gold hue throughout the cleat plate and Swoosh. The lifestyle iteration features a textured upper with the same green hue, which is inspired by his commitment to excellence, while revealing hidden layers on the heel tab, such as “Green Light” in Korean — a nod to his cultural heritage and the way he slices defenders when on the run.
