Kobe Bryant and Nike iD took to the Twitterverse for some help designing a pair of Kobe 8s for the Black Mamba to wear during a Home game. The #COUNTONKOBEiD contest started on January 30th and ended when Kobe himself picked the winner yesterday – this clean Purple/Gold colorway with a translucent outsole and the holiday snake upper graphic designed by @7thChamberPt2. Think you can design a better color? Better head to Nike iD to whip up your own pair, but in the meantime, let us know if you’d like to see Nike iD run more of these interactive contests by voicing your comments below.
