Nike Zoom Kobe VI – Christmas

Christmas in the UK is about as traditional as you can get. A roast dinner, the queens speech and those christmas hats we have to pretend we like wearing. While we are nodding off in front of the TV, those guys across the pond are enjoying a bunch of the biggest teams in the NBA battle it out on the hardwood, and more importantly, witnessing the one off Christmas colour-ups of Kobe and Lebron’s signature shoes in action.

This Christmas colourway of the Kobe VI will be premiered on Christmas day by Mr Bryant when the Lakers take on the Miami Heat, a showdown not to be missed. The Nike Zoom Kobe VI is the next shoe in the signature line, with the design playing on Kobe’s ‘Black Mamba’ nickname. This colour-up even has a venomous green to it with hits of blood red, making for a deadly look.

There isn’t really a great deal of difference to the Kobe V on the VI, with minor tweaks made and more of an aesthetic added with that snake skin texture. As with the Kobe V, Nike Zoom technology has been utilised across the whole outsole of the shoe which makes a huge difference if you’re going to ball in these, as the comfort level is ridiculous on the V.

    The game itself was quite a let-down, however, the kicks on the court were awesome, especially these!
