Nike Kyrie 3 (Samurai)

Date: July 14 2017

By: Matt Williams


UPDATE: It was all the way back in December 2016 that the Kyrie 3 made its grand debut, hitting stores in a so-called 'Samurai' make-up. Nearly seven months later, the blood-soaked Kyrie returns for the off-season. Get your pair July 14 from select Nike Basketball accounts, including KicksStore.

Nike announced the '12 Soles' Collection this past November as a celebration of the past, present and future of basketball. Consisting of the likes of the Air Jordan XXX1 'Space Jam', SF Air Force 1 'Triple White' and Air Foamposite Pro 'Dr Doom', every sneaker in the collection was easily worthy of must-buy status. However, the finally release of the 12-shoe collection was left a mystery until December 25, leaving sneakerheads to eagerly anticipate what the Swoosh had in store.

Come Christmas Day, all was revealed, with the Kyrie 3 making its grand debut with a brutal 'Samurai' make-up. A metallic silver Swoosh cuts through the fine-tuned upper of the Cav's point guard's latest signature sneaker, leaving a trail of blood splatters and crimson highlights in its wake.

The Nike Kyrie 3 'Samurai' was released through SNKRS upon its announcement and sold out instantly. Stay tuned though, as a wider release may be on the cards. We'll keep you posted!
