Nike Kyrie 3 ‘Mamba Mentality’ Performance Review

NBA champion also has a profound appreciation for Lee, notably these famous words: “Always be yourself. Express yourself. Have faith in yourself.”At the first ,Kobe Bryant and Kyrie Irving have little in common with Bruce Lee. yeah , the wisdom ,focus and individuality . Especially for the famous words ,inspired by Lee’s famous words.

Then Nike Basketball has now taken the time to officially unveil the Nike Kyrie 3 Mamba Mentality.



Nike Kyrie 3 ‘Mamba Mentality’  feature with the yellow and black contrasted upper (a tribute to Bruce Lee’s iconic colors), the four red slash marks, a snakeskin-inspired medial side (a nod to the black mamba) that fades into the samurai detailing on the lateral side, the new Kyrobe logo, and the samurai textile print on the lateral side.

Four red slash marks connect to Lee. that is the amazing of design .  A snakeskin-inspired medial side represents the black mamba, fading to Samurai on the lateral side for Kyrie – a metaphorical torch passing. We can  feel snug when we playing longer . That is perfect  for setting 

This Bruce Lee  combination of Kobe 5 elements of design , it is very stable and  light. The outside of  shoes have a  anti rollover design, and engraved the Kobe code which the password is “heart”。

The yellow and black contrasted upper pays tribute to Lee’s trademark colors. 

For the traction , These have excellent traction. Surprising too since the pattern is pretty  traction . Nike will always let you know when they use a certain type of material as to improve grip .The rubber is softer than you’d expect with an outdoor . But it is performance well indoor .


There are a logo words on the heel . and  there are a support for the heel .I think that would’ve allowed the heel to compress a bit more upon heel strikes. 

There are also have a lot of hole for breath .

There are samurai textile print on the lateral side.Both sides of the shoe were used the Flyknit ,Air Jordan 2010 which opted for the full length option. So while they get the job done, the cushion is nothing to gawk at this shoes.

Dynamic Flywire is located at the forefoot for some additional coverage so you don’t put too much strain on the mesh material


Overall ,I like  the materials much more, and the traction, and the colorway . Especial for the  Mamba’s sprit .
