There’s no denying an unspoken rivalry between Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. Both are regarded as two of the best ballplayers on the planet and it’s no surprise that their season match-ups garner a ton of publicity and ratings. This friendly competition may reach as far as their sneakers, with Team Kobe and Team LeBron trying to outdo each other in terms of design, tech, and most importantly, sales. While LeBron’s got the “luxury” part down pat, the Zoom Kobe has perfectly established itself as sleek and sexy. Less is more, and with the new sticky snake-skin upper, the Kobe VI is one temptation that will be hard to resist. This colorway of the Nike Zoom Kobe VI is set to release in December 2010, so take another look at Kobe’s sixth shoe and stick with Sneaker News for more Nike Kobe information. via in52.
