Kobe Bryant’s fifth signature from Nike Basketball has offered some of the most satisfying colorways we’ve seen on the hardwood and here’s an upcoming release that’s sure to keep the trend afloat. The Nike Zoom Kobe V (5) pictured above comes to us in a new shade of indigo called ‘Ink’, but it wouldn’t be shocking if sneakerheads looked at these and thought ‘Eggplant!’ Irrespective of the particular shade of purple, these joints offer just enough variation from the typical Varsity Purple that they offer a novelty while still staying close enough to the Lakers’ uniforms that it wouldn’t be shocking to see Kobe himself rocking these sometime early next season. You can grab yours today, with a size 9 sample available in advance of the Holiday 2010 release, from cigar0330 on eBay.
Color: Ink/Metallic Silver-Black
