Kyrie Irving Unveils Alternative Nike Kyrie 3 “Bruce Lee” for Mamba Day

Kyrie Irving may be out for the remainder of his debut season with the Boston Celtics after having surgery on his knee, yet production hasn’t slowed on his signature sneaker collection with Nike. Looking back to last year’s Nike Kyrie 3, one of the standout colorways was an ode to Kobe Bryant and his love for Bruce Lee.

The sneaker was dubbed the “Mamba Mentality” Kyrie 3 and it directly took from Bryant’s Nike Zoom Kobe V “Bruce Lee.” Largely finished in yellow with red secondary coloring, the shoe remains one of the most sought after Kyrie 3’s to date. Today, though, Irving has revealed an opposing colorway dressed predominately in red with yellow contrasts. This alternative colorway doesn’t appear to be a retail release. Just a little something special Kyrie pulled out for Mamba Day.

My take on Mamba Day!! For the culture only…. ?? @kobebryant

Upcoming Nike Kyrie 4 is Inspired by His Memorable Finals Performance

The Cleveland Cavaliers 2016 NBA Finals comeback is one of legend. No team has ever emerged victorious in a Finals facing a 3-1 deficit. The Cavs did due in large part of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Irving, now a Celtic, had a performance in that Finals that made him the superstar he is today.

His 41-point outburst in Game 5 of the series helped the Cavs get over the hump, giving them the confidence and poise they needed to close out the Golden State Warriors. This upcoming Nike Kyrie 4 honors that towering performance in black and crimson shades with what appears to be bricks at the heel, symbolizing Irving’s ability to put missed shots behind him and thrive beyond the shots that didn’t fall.

Take a closer look at the Nike Kyrie 4 “41 for the Ages” on April 14.

Nike Kyrie 4 “41 for the Ages”

Colorway: Black/Crimson

Nike Kyrie 3 “Rayguns” Releasing in Boston

Kyrie Irving Debuts Nike Kyrie 3 “Fear” PE Against Magic

For the first time this season, the Boston Celtics broke out their new Nike Statement NBA jerseys against the Orlando Magic on Friday. And quite appropriately, Celtics star Kyrie Irving made a statement with his performance and kicks as he unveiled his new Nike Kyrie 3 “Fear” PE.

Featuring a black and neon green colorway, this PE of the Kyrie 3 also features subtle graphic detailing on the upper. The neon green is featured with Irving’s signature logo on the tongue and on the outsole.

Here’s the inspiration for the shoes from @Beensmoove:

Fear is the motivator that drives us to pursue greatness. Without fear we aren’t aggressive, we aren’t focused. Fear is the reality that everything that we value and work for can disappear in an instant. It is up to us to accept that fear is real but it is what we do with fear that separates the good from the great.

The Nike Kyrie 3 “Fear” was likely created just for Irving so don’t expect them to be released anytime soon. But hopefully Irving will lace these PEs up again, especially since he had quite the game in them as he finished with 30 points, four rebounds and three assists in Boston’s 118-103 win over the Magic.

Nike Kyrie 3 “Tiffany” // Release Date

Will Kyrie Irving suit up for the Cleveland Cavaliers at the start of next season? Maybe. Sure, Irving shocked everyone and requested a trade from the Eastern Conference champs. But dealing a player of his caliber, even if he desires it, is still the team’s decision. They would need to secure proper value for Irving on the market. Moreover, ensure they fill the void of his substantial contributions. None of this is easy.

In the meantime, the only thing certain surrounding Kyrie is more colorways of his third signature shoe. This monochromatic Nike Kyrie 3 “Tiffany” colorway is releasing on August 19 in both men’s and GS sizes. Grab a closer look below and let us know if you plan to cop.

Note: pair shown is GS edition

Kyrie Irving Hopes To Have At Least 12 Nike Signature Shoes, To Make a Sneaker Clock

words // Nick DePaula:

In a recent candid conversation with Cleveland Cavaliers-centric blog WaitingForNextYear, Cavs All-Star guard Kyrie Irving spoke about his involvement with designer Leo Chang on his signature footwear, when you can expect to see the upcoming Kyrie 3 both on court and in stores, and his long-term goals for his line.

Surprisingly, Irving has just one simple goal in mind — he wants to get to 12 signature sneakers — in order to spruce up his home’s interior design.

“I have an aspiration, and Bron has it in his house: I just want to get to 12 and have a clock running,” says Kyrie. “He has a clock running of his shoes. That right there was like a goal of mine to just make it to 12 and then I could choose my best ones. So, yeah, I want to have a clock of my shoes like LeBron.”

Twelve of course works for the hourly breakdown on a clock, but is also esteemed territory for signature lines. Only Michael, Kobe, Allen Iverson, LeBron and Carmelo Anthony have received twelve or more signature models.

Sneaker clocks might not be an entirely new concept, and historically have almost exclusively featured the first dozen Air Jordan models. Hopefully, Kyrie’s revelation about LeBron’s signature timepiece might push the Cavs star to share an image of his home setup. For Irving, we’ll have to wait another nine years for that to become a reality, but we like his chances.

The Nike Kyrie 2 “Parade” May Release at Retail

Remember that unreleased Nike Kyrie 2 Irving wore during the Cavs championship parade? Well, the pair has been spotted before Kyrie’s foot meaning they could be releasing at retail in the near future.

Aptly titled the Nike Kyrie 2 “Parade”, the shoe highlights a glossy floral strap atop a clean white baselayer. Glowing Volt branding hits the tongue while a black backing balances the look at the heel.

Nike has yet to announce plans for a championship Nike Kyrie 2, and this likely isn’t that shoe. But it could be the start of drops ending with a crowning championship release for Irving.

Is Another Nike Kyrie 2 “Duke” Release on the Way?

Riffing off the “Brotherhood” theme that helped highlight the Nike Kyrie 1 campaign, the Nike Kyrie 2 “Duke” follow-up took a starring role in the continued onslaught of Irving’s second signature shoe.

Now, what looks to be a third Blue Devils-inspired release of the Kyrie 2 could be on the way. Seen here for the first time, a dominant grey hue leads the look while blue accents hit the tongue and outsole. Likely an “alternative” colorway for the Durham squad, give this Nike Kyrie 2 “Duke” a look below and stay tuned for potential release details.
