8/14/17 O&A NYC FASHION: Kyrie Irving Speaks About His New Sneaker Collaboration With Kobe Bryant

Kyrie Irving said his new special-release Nike Kyrie3’s are inspired by Kobe Bryant. “So it started off as just an idea. I was 17 years old playing in the Nike Extravaganza in California, and I ended up wearing these Nike Kobe Bruce Lee editions for that game. And we ended up winning, and from that point on it was hands-down my favorite shoe ever,” Irving said in a post via Instagram.

Those Bruce Lee editions he was talking about were the Kobe V Bruce Lee. In Irving’s collaboration with Bryant, Irving uses the same yellow and black coloring, and uses red accents. 

Irving also combines the Black Mamba’s logo on the tongue to accompany his traditional KI.
