Nike Sportswear introduces an all new Air Force 1 inspired by Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Kobe inspiration is seen with the snakeskin finish throughout the entire patent leather upper, working together with a classic Los Angeles Lakers color scheme. A gradient purple Swoosh is put to use on these to match the collar lining and outsole, while Lakers' gold hits the laces and midsole detailing.

The 'Kobe' Nike Air Force 1 Low is expected to hit select retailers on April 12th.
