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

Kobe Bryant Mamba Mentality China Tour // Inside Look

Kobe Bryant may be retired from professional basketball, but he sure ain’t done with Nike. While sneakerheads anxiously await retro releases and hope for a Nike Kobe 12, he’s still pushing both his current signature and Mentality model overseas. Recently in China, our friends at Kicksvision had a chance to stop by the tour. See the Black Mamba in action in the photos below.





















Nike Kobe 9 EXT High “Black Mamba”

With its “Christmas” colorway primed to deck the halls with plenty of fly boughs of holly, the Nike Kobe 9 EXT High has another premium variation on the way. Dubbed the “Black Mamba”, this tonal version sees the Kobe’s ninth signature shoe flaunt a sleek blacked-out palette. Done up with reptile-inspired detailing about its upper, leather works its way up the ankle. A hint of metallic silver adorns the midsole, with a set of waxed laces completing the premium look. Available now over at Brazil-based Artwalk, you can get a better look at the Nike Kobe 9 EXT High “Black Mamba” below.
