So you’ve decided it is time for a new pair of shoes for basketball. But man, there are so many basketball shoes to choose from. And so many different manufacturers. You know, just maybe this time I am going to go all out and buy a special pair of kicks. A pair that is a one of a kind. Professional players have their own signature sneakers, why can’t I? Well, if you decide that you want a signature sneaker that is truly yours and it has to be one of a kind, a pair of Nike shoes for basketball is just the ticket. And there is a really cool way to punch that ticket.
Among the many different shoes you can personalize at NikeID is the Kobe VI basketball shoe. Nike will allow you to choose textures, colors, and other elements from the sole of your shoes to the laces of your shoes. Pretty cool huh? The Kobe VI is available for you to build from the ground up.
Outsole – To start, you have the ability to pick what surface you play and match the optimum outsole with it. Court or asphalt, you make the call. In addition, you have the choice of a solid or translucent color choice to make.
Midsole – Here you get to choose a primary color and an accent color. You have 6 primary and 8 accent colors to choose from. The midsole color is important because it is a major accent of the shoe.
Upper – Now things are going to get really interesting. Not only do you get to pick a color here, you also can pick a separate color pattern. Fade and Camo or options you have to create your masterpiece. The Fade blends two different colors on the snakeskin upper while the Camo allows you to choose a camouflage design that is made up of two to three different colors.
Heel – The heel cup and accent are both elements of the Kobe VI that you can determine the color on here. A short id with a maximum of 2 characters is also available here on the heel tab. You can go crazy with this! Put your high school jersey number here and play like you did back in the day!
Inner Lining – This is another opportunity to make this shoe a one of a kind. Not only do can you choose the lining color, you can add an additional id in the form of a long id. You are allowed a maximum of 8 characters that are placed on the inside of the shoe’s tongue. Again, go crazy! If they called you “Big Sexy” in high school that’s what needs to be on the inside of your shoe.
Laces – Finish off your one of a kind shoe by picking the color of your laces and get out on the court….to break some necks. When the ballers take a look at you in your new, never seen before Kobe VI’s, you are going to have some explaining to do.
But take it easy on your first shoe, one pair of NikeID shoes for basketball may not be enough to capture all of the creative energy contained in your big sexy body.
