Sneaker News recently showed you an Air Jordan III done up with Nike Zoom Kobe VI-inspired detailing, but almost everyone outside the Los Angeles megalopolis would agree, any such custom ‘should’ be the contemporary nodding in respect toward the trailblazer. And that’s what you get with the latest work from Emmanuelabor, a Nike Zoom Kobe VI iD turned ‘Aquamamba’ thanks to the inclusion of the ‘Aqua’ Air Jordan VIII’s signature streaking along the ZK6’s Swoosh and heel. Going with a NIKEiD base allowed for ‘AQUA’ embroidery on the inner tongue and a translucent outsole; would you like to see the latter on an AJVIII Retro+, or perhaps on the Air Jordan 8.0? Check out this MJ-inspired Zoom Kobe 6 in more images after the jump and let us know how these rank against the ever growing file of classic colorway reprisals. via PaintorThread
...and the PLASTIC MOLDING,on the rear of the shoe,should have been BLACK. Even with that this is STILL one of NIKE's less attractive models. CREATIVE colorway,though.
