Kobe Dream Season II

Kicking Off 2010 with the Kobe Dream II

The Kobe Dream Season II shoe is another collaborative piece by Kobe Bryant and Nike. As the Dream Season was inspired by the Nike Zoom Kobe 4, the Kobe Season II is inspired by the recently-unveiled Kobe 5. This pair is very rare as it is an Asian exclusive. Fans and collectors from the States would have to fly to Asia or buy online in order to get their hands on this limited edition pair. This is quite the sneaker as it not only incorporates features from the Kobe 5, but also the Kobe IV.

The Kobe Dream Season II will be released in Asia around summertime 2010. It is to highlight Kobe (and the Lakers’) run for a second consecutive championship. This will also give quite the hype to the Kobe 5. The color scheme of the Dream Season II is predominantly white with navy and gold highlights. The shoe is mostly white, with upper and rubber soles shaded in navy. As will all Kobe shoes, these bear Kobe’s signature and emblem, both shaded in gold. The midsole bears interesting lined stitching designs that are colored in gold and navy. The Swoosh is colored solidly in black.

Since this is an Asian release, you can expect it to sell out fast. The best way to get your hands on them is to get in touch with connections as early as now. With this shoe, you can get the benefits of Flywire technology and Lunar Foam. It also retains its low-ankle design and its lightweight, breathable feel. The Dream Season II is a great way to start off your 2010 Kobe shoe collection. The wait is definitely worth it.

Zoom Kobe 6 Camo

Stealth Snake: The Zoom Kobe 6 Camo

The Nike Zoom Kobe 6 is one the most successful modern basketball shoes in recent memory. Coming with a striking design and cutting edge technology, it is popular to both basketball players and collectors alike. This shoe is worn by Kobe “The Black Mamba” Bryant for the 2011 NBA season.

Just like Kobe’s other shoes since the Zoom Kobe 4 was released, the Kobe 6’s design is of the low-cut variety, a break in tradition among basketball shoes. However, some significant changes were made in order to improve in performance and make it stand out in the looks department. A low profile to the ground was achieved in this shoe by installing Zoom Air in the heel and forefoot. However, a significant difference that this iteration has with the previous Kobe shoes is the non-usage of Flywire material in the upper. It was replaced with a cast urethane outer shell paired with an inner dual density sock liner. This provides better foot stability while molding to the user’s feet.

A sculpted Phylon midsole and a molded external heel counter completes the parts of this shoe. In the looks department, Nike has left none to chance. A snake theme dominates the look, paying homage to Bryant’s nickname. “Snake scale” patterns are embedded all throughout the upper, and the outsole has a traction pattern that continues the snake scale look. And if this radical styling is not enough, in addition to the purple and yellow Lakers inspired colors, Nike is producing the Kobe 6 in various colorways that are striking in the eye to say the list. This includes the red/black all-star edition, the lime green Grinch edition, and the Zoom Kobe 6 Camo, a colorway adorned with a camouflage pattern.

The Zoom Kobe 6 Camo colorways is the next step on continuing the extreme looks of the shoe itself. There are 3 available styles of the Camo, the “Camo”, the “Photo Blue Camo”, and the “Italian Camo”. The “Camo” is predominantly black with shades of Dark Gray and Concord in a camouflage pattern. Blue and red accents complete the look. The “Photo Blue Camo” might just be the most radical looking of the Camo line. Predominantly colored in bright “Photo Blue”, it is further accentuated by black, other shades of blue, and even neon green. The last variant is the “Italian Camo”. Predominantly black, it is adorned with the sane camouflage pattern in olive green and khaki.

Plus, if these colorways are not good or extreme enough for you, you can customize your own Zoom Kobe 6 Camo using the Nike iD service. Limited to only 240 pairs, exclusivity comes with individuality if you are able to grab one of these.

Kobe Bryant Shoes In Imperial Purple

A brand new spanking new pair of Kobe Bryant shoes has dropped. Stop the presses! No…that won’t be necessary. A Kobe VI is released, as we all know, once a week these days. A new Kobe shoe sighting is not breaking news. But what is breaking news is that the new colorway actually uses the colors of the Los Angeles Lakers. This time it is purple, no wait a second, imperial purple that is the primary color used on this new shoe. What the hell is imperial purple? I guess it is purple in which a very cool descriptive Nike term is attached.

The new Kobe VI colorway features this cool imperial purple on the standard snakeskin upper, midsole, heel cup and cage, inner lining, laces, and the forefoot portion of the outsole. Are you getting the picture? This is a very imperial purple shoe. Del Sol, another cool Nike term for yellow, is used on the Swoosh and Kobe logo. This colorway just might be the closest to Laker colors that we have ever seen on a pair of Kobe Bryant shoes.

Unfortunately, it might be the last…at least in the very near future. The NBA lockout is looming closer on the horizon and there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of good news coming from the NBA Players Association or the owners. If there is indeed no NBA season this year, and it certainly is looking like that will be the case, sneakerheads will have to do without new editions and colorways of the Kobe Bryant signature sneaker line. Oh, the horror!

Correct me if I am wrong, but NBA players are millionaires. Owners of NBA franchises are millionaires. Both players and owners alike, who have done quite well financially, are actually haggling over who should have more money. What!? Not being able to watch NBA basketball games is one thing. Not being able to cop a brand new edition of a Kobe shoe is another thing. The thought of a week going by without a Kobe shoe drop is outrageous!

The reality is that there may not be new editions and colorways of the Kobe Bryant shoe line in the near future. It that indeed is the case, sneakerheads had better head over to Nike.com or Eastbay.com and grab themselves a pair of Kobe VI’s while they are still available. This includes the new Imperial Purple colorway that will sell out quickly. I, for one, will be stocking up on one of the best Nike shoes for basketball
