Enter the Dragon x Black Mamba fusion gives life to the latest colorway of Irving’s signature Nike basketball shoe. The Kyrie 3 Mamba Mentality.
Kyrie, just like any NBA guards today looked up to Kobe Bryant and even had the chance to play against him even before the Mamba retired Pro. Both Kyrie and Kobe shares the same passion in Basketball, from a protege and mentor relationship to becoming friends overtime.
The Kyrie 3 shares the resemblance of Kobe 5(one of Kyrie’s personal favorite) in the transition of the black and yellow colors from the upper down to the outsole plus the 4 scratch marks on the side.
In this Kyrie 3, it parts itself from the other colorways. This is a special edition Kyrie 3 and features a Kyrobe logo, a fusion of Mamba and Kyrie Irving’s Nike logos on the tongue.
Just like the Kobe 5 Bruce Lee, the Kyrie 3 Mamba Mentality also has 4 slash marks that is a reminder of Lee’s Enter the dragon scene.
Retails at $120 USD, with a release date of September 15, this special edition Kyrie 3 is safe to dub also as the Kyrie 3 Bruce Lee
