In 2016, Kobe played his last NBA game on the 13th of April. That day is known as Mamba Day. For Mamba Day 2019, Nike Basketball has created the KYRIE 5 “Mamba Mentality”. The sneaker is inspired by the Kobe V Chaos.

As his experience and maturity begin to match his hunger and drive, Kyrie’s Mamba Mentality continues to reach new heights. Entering his 8th season in the league, Kyrie has transitioned from student to teacher as he uses the tenaciousness channeled through Kobe to birth the next generation of cold-blooded players. “Mamba Mentality” honors the motivating impact that Kobe’s had on Kyrie as he now looks to help unlock the intangible piece of the Black Mamba that lives deep within every athlete.

Nike.com US has the Nike KYRIE 5 “Mamba Mentality” listed for a 13th of April release for $130.
