New Kyrie 3 to release on NYE.

Nike officially revealed Kyrie Irving's third signature sneaker, the Kyrie 3, in a "Black Ice" colorway earlier this week and now the floodgates are open.

Up next for the Kyrie 3 is this "Hot Punch" colorway which is decked out in a red wine to matchup up with the Cavs uniforms, although the "Hot Punch" branding and detailing gives the sneakers a totally new vibe. 

Here's what Kyrie had to say about his new signature sneaker, per Nike:

"It's a different lace form that allows you to keep your forefoot down and stay locked in.The team at Nike shows me pictures of me on court and my foot is at an unbelievable angle.  I'm crossing over somebody and my body angle and positioning is so abnormal, even when I look at it. I'm kind of amazed, because I'm thinking, all I did was a simple cross over here, but my foot is dang near touching the ground horizontally. I want to have technology in this shoe that is fit for those moments. The shoe is lightweight, comfortable and always keeps me locked down."

"The traction pods are unbelievable. How responsive they are on the floor. Starting and stopping and going and picking up from behind-the-back crossover, and you start and stop on a dime while your defenders shoes are still going forward. That can be the biggest difference. This game is separated by very finite moments where you have to get your shot off. My shoe speaks to that. Being able to stop on a dime and cross over and go another direction, I can't wait for players to try it."

This "Hot Pink" joint will be releasing on New Year's Eve, December 31st, for the retail price of $120.
