Andy said that the Nike Kyrie 2 Doernbecher was made as a tribute to those who have helped him get better along the way. Notable features on the shoe include the word “Joy” noted inside the Nike Swoosh placed on the midsole. He chose this word as a tribute to his late Aunt Peggy, who battled breast cancer while he was recovering. He also pays tribute to his mom on the underside of the cross-strap. The hits of Blue represent his favorite baseball and football teams, while the logo on the tongue which shows a human-like lion standing over a log, is meant to represent the fact that nothing could keep him down.
