Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving shares an affinity for retired legend Kobe Bryant and this transcends even to the shoe realm.

The 25-year-old 4-time NBA All Star unveiled his latest Nike Kyrie 3 “Bruce Lee”  colorway on Friday (Saturday in Manila) as a tribute to the Laker great.

In a video uploaded on his Instagram account, Irving recalled how he wore the classic Nike Zoom Kobe V “Bruce Lee” kicks—patterned after the martial artist’ iconic yellow track suit—during the Nike Extravaganza event when he was 17 years old.

Eight years later, the shoes remain one of Irving’s favorite and he decided to implement the vibrant colorway to his own signature line.

“This is an honor and a blessing and I can’t wait to share it to the world,” he said.
