Kobe Bryant is Bruce Lee

by February 03, 2010

Love the new colorway, Kob, but, um …. : “Nike Basketball has just unveiled several themed posters that tie into Kobe Bryant’s adoration for Bruce Lee, with the inspired-by colorway set to drop this Saturday at House Of Hoops and select Nike accounts nationwide. With a yellow synthetic base and black bonded overlays, this rendition also features hits of red and four iconic scratch marks along the lateral side of the shoe. For Kobe, the colorway is one of many that will be releasing that took direct influence from the people throughout history that he has looked up to. ‘We have some different people that have been inspirational to me,’ Kobe explained during an interview for Sole Collector’s upcoming Issue 32. ‘We all have had dreams, goals or aspirations, and have met resistance in one form or fashion. Those are people that I draw inspiration from, so we used those with the different colors of the shoe, [like] the Bruce Lee shoe.”’
