Despite all the hoopla and media whirlwind caused by LeBron’s decision to leave for Miami and the ‘South Beach’ LeBron 8 that immediately followed, 2010-11 has been Kobe’s year. After winning his fifth championship and unveiling his sixth signature shoe with Nike, Kobe Bryant is enjoying the sweet life as head honcho of Nike Basketball; a ton of sweet Kobe VI colorways have already made their way to store shelves and we also got a look at two Kobe-inspired Air Force 1s – the most historic and time-honored Nike Basketball shoe to date. Releasing this Thursday at 21 Mercer is the Kobe Bryant x Nike Air Force 1 Pack – a sick duet of the Nike Air Force 1 Low VT and Nike Air Force 1 High Foamposite. Both pairs feature Kobe’s golden Shozoku logo on the tongue with each pair owning its own Mamba-esque quality (the Low has a snakeskin lace placket, the High is done up in rich Varsity Purple). Hit up 21 Mercer and other select retailers this Thursday, or pick up a pair now on eBay.
