Eric Koston's upcoming third signature sneaker is the latest in a recent line of Nike shoes featuring sock-like collars extending up their ankles.

That collar, along with the purple and gold colorway spotted on this pair, have the shoe looking an awfully lot like a Nike Kobe tribute. It's possible that the brand will make the connection concrete when it officially introduces the shoe — it didn't shy away from the reference on the similar NikeCourt Flare for Serena Williams.

Koston and Kobe Bryant officially got together in the sneaker world before for a collab take on the former's first signature shoe.

The Nike SB Hyperfeel 3 has apparently already released at select Nike SB accounts for $150.
