Although Kyrie Irving remains hampered on the shelf with a serious knee injury — unable to help his Boston Celtics squad ramp up for round one of the NBA playoffs, his signature sneaker line moves forward with a commemorative release.

Rocking a similar design dynamic to last year’s Kyrie 3 “Bruce Lee” model, Kyrie recently took to Instagram to tease a bold red-toned iteration, which like the aforementioned release, also draws direct inspiration from Mamba’s Nike Kobe 5 “Bruce Lee” iteration. An intricately patterned red textile dominates the upper with black landing on the side Swoosh, midsole and front strap design. Subtle splashes of yellow peek out from the signature claw marks, Swoosh outline and speckled midsole.

Unlikely to hit the market for sale, Kyrie thought to pay respects to Bryant for Mamba Day with this unreleased Nike model.

Keeping with hoops-related kicks, Ray Allen shows off his rare Air Jordan PEs.

My take on Mamba Day!! For the culture only…. ?? @kobebryant
