Kyrie Irving took to his Instagram today to show the world a brand new colorway of his latest signature sneaker, the Nike Kyrie 3 Bruce Lee. Irving recalls the time he was only 17 years old and playing in the Nike Extravaganza in California (2009) where he laced up a pair of Nike Kobe Bruce Lee editions (Kobe 5). Irving says that from that point on that was “hands down his favorite shoe ever.”
That’s where the inspiration for this new Kyrie 3 comes from. Inspired and influenced by Kobe Bryant, the Nike Kyrie 3 Bruce Lee features a black and yellow color makeup. Signature details of the sneaker include a Kobe/Kyrie mash-up logo on the tongue, the red scar graphic in red by the toe, graphics that are similar to those seen on the Samurai colorway on the lateral side panels, and a snake (Mamba) type texture on the medial side panel. Yellow to black gradient midsoles and a black rubber outsole complete the look.
No information yet as far as a release date goes, but stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for updates.
