Since stepping on the NBA scene last season, New York Knicks guard Landry Fields has hit the Madison Square Garden hardwood in various sneakers from Kobe Bryant's Nike signature line. With that in mind, the Nike Basketball team issued Landry this Player Exclusive colorway of the Kobe VII to wear for Team Shaq in tonight's Rising Stars Challenge Game.
Decked out in Knicks colors, the shoe sports an orange synthetic upper, accented by royal blue on the laces, Flywire, inner lining and heel counter. Metallic silver handles Swoosh branding on the lateral and medial side panels. The orange midsole features a blue speckle and sits atop a blue rubber outsole. Giving this PE an official All-Star feel is the NASA-style mission patch on the backside of the tongue.
Look for these on Landry's feet tonight when the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge tips off at 9:00 p.m. EST on TNT.
