Kyrie Irving’s new signature sneakers get their officially release today, but Nike warmed things up on Christmas Day with a special launch of “Samurai” colorway for the holidays. The sneakers sold out just as quickly as Irving’s last-second shot sealed Cleveland’s win over Golden State, leaving many sneakerheads empty-handed. However, some of Irving’s close friends and fellow Nike athletes were lucky enough to get the sneakers as holiday gifts.

I don't know about you guys, but I can't wait for Christmas Day! Keep an eye out for your surprise at tip-off.

The Nike Kyrie 3 “Samurai” release was the final drop of Nike’s “12 Soles Collection,” bookending the monthlong holiday campaign as a surprise drop. According to Nike, the special launch was “crafted to catch even the quickest off guard,” and Irving lived up to the sneaker’s backstory with a show-stealing performance in the sneakers as the Cavaliers inched by the Warriors 109-108.

Although the “Samurai” Kyrie 3 has sold out, the sneaker’s “Black/Ice” colorway is available now from Nike for $120.
