Nike Kyrie 5 'Mamba Mentality' Channels Kobe's 'Chaos' Kicks
Release: 13 April 2019

Paul George isn't the only Nike hoops star getting a Kobe Bryant–inspired sneaker in honour of the Swoosh's annual Mamba Day celebrations.

Coming soon is a 'Mamba Mentality' take on Kyrie Irving's signature Kyrie 5. The upcoming drop is a clear nod to the Joker-inspired 'Chaos' rendition of the Kobe 5, which dropped in 2009 and was a follow-up to the corresponding Kobe 4 that was released as a nod to The Dark Knight. As for the Kyrie 5, it perfectly echoes that Kobe 5 colourway, and even dons hybrid Kyrie x Black Mamba logos on the tongues. Last but not least, the right heel counter sports Kobe's signature, while Kyrie's script graces that of the left.

The Kyrie 5 'Mamba Mentality' drops April 13 for $130.
