He already shares a home arena with them. Now, Kobe Bryant has a colorway for his fellow Staples Center residents, the Los Angeles Clippers.

According to Polish retailer, ATAF, this latest Nike Zoom Kobe Venomenon 5 carries the nickname of "Lob City" in a striking red upper coupled with an ice outsole. Granted, the shoes aren't an exact representaion of the Clippers' team colors, but the fact the shoe is possibly a nod to the "other," yet, currently better Los Angeles team can't possibly sit well with Lakers' fans. And we certainly don't think this is something Kobe would ever cosign.

Nevertheless, fans of the Venomenon 5 can pick up this later colorway now via ATAF. No word on when or if these will be hitting Stateside so we'll just have to wait and see.
