UPDATE: Kyrie Irving's homage to Bruce Lee and Kobe Bryant has made for one of his line's most radical colourways. Anchored in deep black, the sneaker wears its wounds and textured yellow upper with utmost confidence, and honours three of the world's most celebrated athletes. Add these to cart when they drop on SNKRS on September 15.
At the age of 17, a young Kyrie Irving donned a pair of ‘Bruce Lee’ Kobe 5s to play at the Nike Extravaganza in California. Now an established 25-year old star, Irving pays tribute to his mentor (and channel's Bryant's serpentine mantra) with his own Bruce Lee-inspired sneaker: the Kyrie 3 ‘Mamba Mentality’. The design is jam-packed with unique detailing, including a hybrid logo, special textures and custom slash marks.
The Nike Kyrie 3 ‘Mamba Mentality’ will be available on September 15 from select stockists, as well as online from NDC.
