Get ready Sneakerheads because Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving has a special edition ‘Uncle Drew’ Nike sneaker coming to a store near you.
In addition to working with Nike, Irving’s ‘Uncle Drew’ sneaker collaboration includes the prominent cereal brand Wheaties.
On Thursday Irving was the first to receive the exclusive “Wheaties Box,” which was filled with one of the coolest shoe boxes ever.
Wait until you see what’s inside!
Coolest Nike signature collaboration this year: @KyrieIrving & @wheaties. Only 100 made with the box that will go to Kyrie’s friends & family. Shoe itself will be available at retail. For what it’s worth this is the most relevant Wheaties has been in a decade. pic.twitter.com/oapEcotqPl— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) May 3, 2018
You got to admit that the whole package is pretty sick, right?
One side of the shoebox has the pair of sneaks, and the other has an exclusive breakfast sized box with Irving on the front, plus a commemorative bowl and spoon.
But there’s some bad news.
Unfortunately it’ll be nearly impossible to get your hands on the complete set since only 100 are being made for Irving and his inner circle. Whereas the Nike sneakers will be hitting shelves at a store near you.
But don’t be surprised if at least one box pops up for sale somewhere on the internet.
Uncle Drew and its long list of stars turned “old,” hits your local theater on June 29.
The cast includes NBA stars like Kyrie Irving, Shaquille O’Neal, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, Chris Webber and others. Plus WNBA super star Lisa Leslie and Hollywoods’ Lil Rel Howery, Erica Ash, Tiffany Haddish and Nick Kroll.
Check out the official movie trailer below.

Irving has been rolling with the Celtics throughout the NBA Playoffs.
Last night he got wicked amped up after Terry Rozier III finished off this “euro step” in the Celtics’ Game 2 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night. And he even mimicked Rozier’s move, which kind of looks like a dance move.
UP NEXT: The #2 Boston Celtics (55-27/2-0) will welcome the #3 Philadelphia 76ers (52-30/0-2) to the TD Garden on Saturday night for Game 3 of the Semifinals in the NBA Playoffs.
