Not every sneaker that unites some shade of blue and some shade of green needs to be linked to the Seattle Seahawks, but if you're a fan, what a time to be alive.
If there were a connection, this new colorway of the Nike Kobe 10 would sync up with the uniforms worn by team throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s. Or it could simply just be tagged "Sprite." Deep royal, featured on the upper, does most of the work, while metallic silver Swoosh branding flanks the quarters. Bright green finds a home on the midsole and outsole to complete the look.
The "Deep Royal" Kobe 10 has a sneaker release date set for next Saturday, Oct. 3 at Nike Basketball retailers.
Nike Kobe 10 “Emerald City” / "Seahawks"
Release Date: 10/03/15
Color: Deep Royal/Metallic Silver-Green Shock
Style #: 705317-402
UPDATE 9/26: It turns out that linking this Kobe 10 to the Seahawks isn't far-fetched after all. According to Nike, this colorway is officially dubbed "Emerald City," as Kobe (#24 for the Lakers) pays tribute to "Beastmode" Marshawn Lynch (#24 for the Seahawks).
