After just a few weeks in his newest shoe, Kobe Bryant is already on a tear and breaking out new colorways on a game-to-game basis.

Last night at Staples, the guy who actually signs off his Facebook posts with "Mamba Out" rocked a new grey-based PE of his newest system sneaker. The engineered mesh upper sits atop a two-toned purple midsole and outsole, with yellow eyelet bonding adding in some extra accenting.

No word just yet on whether or not this version will be releasing, and unfortunately you can't iD them up just yet because you have to work within the Christmas edition's graphic restrictions, but we'll be sure to keep you posted if news about a potential release comes around.
