While the NBA community is still nervously awaiting a bombshell trade involving Kyrie Irving, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ star point guard just announced a new colorway for his Nike Kyrie 3s.

The new colorway, the ‘Bruce Lee’, is a collaboration project with fellow Nike-sponsored star, Kobe Bryant. Kyrie explained in the new video that he wanted to commemorate a Kobe colorway that was also inspired by Bruce Lee.
On the tongue, one half of both the Kyrie and Kobe Nike logos will be featured side-by-side. Just like Kobe’s Lee-inspired kicks, the Kyrie 3s will be a red/black/yellow scheme. On the inner half of the shoe there is some spotted texturing, while the outer half has some raised texturing as well. Of course, the outer half also features the red claw marks as seen on Kobe’s classic shoe.
In the announcement video, Irving hinted that the shoe may be released, but there is no official release date set.
