Taking us back to the early days of Kobe Bryant's storied NBA career, adidas recently released the original colorway of the Top Ten 2000.

Rocked by Kobe as a young Lakers rookie for his first ever media day, the Top Ten 2000 returns in the original combination of white, dark indigo and gold. The classic sihouette features a dark indigo nubuck upper, while white handles the molded mudguard, midsole and adidas branding throughout. Minimal hits of gold accent the toe and heel branding, while dark indigo completes the look on the outsole down below.

The "Dark Indigo" adidas Top Ten 2000 is now available at select adidas retailers nationwide such as Packer Shoes.
