It didn't take long for the Nike Basketball team to drop Kobe's latest signature sneaker in a colorway exclusive to his younger fanbase. While this pair doesn't exactly fall in line with the usual "Draft Day" motif, you can probably picture Kobe lacing them up with a Hornets uniform had that trade never gone down. The shoe features a deep royal blue "Kobe Skin" synthetic upper, equipped with Flywire threading and an external heel clip for additional stability. Metallic Summit White is used for Swoosh branding on the side panels, while the provided laces are done in light blue. Magenta hits on the inning lining heel, midsole and outsole finish off this eye-catching look.
