Earlier this week Sneaker News showed you two brand new colorways of the Nike Zoom Kobe VI – one of which was the ‘Lakers Gradient’. The upper features a uniquely blocked color gradient that travels primarily from medial to lateral rather than anterior to posterior, using the two signature Los Angeles Lakers colors as the base. As you can see, the yellow is painted rather coarsely adnd only inbetween the TPU scales rather than over them, creating a strange double-layered format of color-blocking. Other fine details include the translucent white outsole, which matches the white midsole, swoosh and heel-counter. Should the 2011 NBA Season begin on schedule, you can certainly expect the Black Mamba to don these for the earlier part of the 82-game campaign. More shots await you below so have a look-see and let us know what you think. via kickz-lab.
