words_Brandon Richard This past Monday, the Los Angeles Lakers celebrated their second consecutive NBA Championship with a two-mile parade. Kobe Bryant told the fans that it was the best of his 5 NBA Championships because it was the hardest one to get. While decked out in his brand new Black Mamba "5-Rings" t-shirt, Kobe also sported a curious pair of shoes that we had not seen before. Think the "Big Stage" Home Zoom Kobe V with a purple twist. They feature a white leather base, with the familiar gold hits on the ankle and heel. Gold also extends to the inner liner, while purple takes over detailing on the Swoosh, midfoot, and toe. No word on whether or not these are expected to release, but you know Nike doesn't pass up many good opportunities. Sole Collector will update you if we hear anything. via KB24
