This colorway of Nike Kobe AD is Lakers ready. With the signing of Lebron to the Lakers along with some key players, the team is automatically visible once again in the radar. Also, you can't have a Kobe shoe without having a Laker-themed colorway even though he's retired. It just shows that the Black Mamba's legacy lives on. Going back to the colorway, black upper with vivid purple hits on the laces, brandings on the tongue, toe box, heel counter and outsoles gives the shoe some pop. The grey accents balances everything out together with the small hints of yellow. Techwise, phylon foam with Zoom Air in the heel was used which isn't new to Nike's basketball models, so if you prefer that setup, then you might want to consider these as well. You can grab this at the Intersports store in Vertis North.
