words_Brandon Richard The Los Angeles Lakers are set to kick off the NBA Finals this Thursday at home against the rival Boston Celtics. While the NBA season may be winding down, Nike certainly isn't done hitting the public with new colorways of Kobe's fifth signature shoe. The new "Ink" Kobe V is sure to be a head turner when it hits retailers later this year. The shoe features an ink purple upper with a metallic silver Swoosh. Silver also hits branding on the tongue and heel, while black works on the inner liner, midsole, and laces. Completing the look is a translucent clear outsole. This colorway is expected to be part of Nike's holiday 2010 group, but you can pick up this sample pair from cigar0330 on eBay. Color: Ink/Metallic Silver-Black Style: 386429-500 via cigar0330
