LOOK: Kyrie Irving debuts new Nike sneakers inspired by 'Toy Story'

If you've been anxiously awaiting the day that an NBA star would unveil a pair of sneakers inspired by a classic Pixar animated film, Kyrie Irving has some amazing news for you.

The Boston Celtics point guard debuted a new pair of 'Toy Story'-inspired Nike sneakers during a recent interview on YouTube's "Sneaker School" with CoSeezy. The special kicks, which have yet to be given an official name (though Irving refers to them as the "Nike Core shoes"), have two separate designs on the left and right sneaker-- one for each of the movie's main characters.

The left shoe is designed with a scheme that reflects Buzz Lightyear's spacesuit, while the right shoe pays homage to Woody.
