"Mamba Mentality" is both an affirmation and a lifestyle. Coined by NBA legend Kobe Bryant, we see the phrase channeled on this Nike Kyrie 3. Released before a pinnacle season in Kyrie Irving's career – after he famously requested to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers to embark on his own journey to greatness – this pair references the Kobe 5 "Bruce Lee," his sneaker of choice while playing in the Nike Extravaganza in California at 17-years-old. A sleek yellow and black colorway defines this release. Red accents include slash marks in homage to Bruce Lee and a brand new 'Kyrobe' logo that combines both Kyrie and Kobe’s signature Nike logos on the tongue. The upper features the pattern from the Kyrie 3 "Samurai" to reference Kyrie’s famous game-winning shot over Klay Thompson during 2016's Christmas Day game.
