Makes total sense that Nike Vault, located inside Kobe Bryant’s castle known as the Staples Center, would get all the special Kobe-centric releases. For tomorrow (when the What the Kobe? officially releases), Nike Vault will release a limited-edition What the Kobe? Pack which features the shoes and a matching set of What the Kobe? socks with a sick Nike Vault x WTK logo on upper tube of socks. These will be given out on a first-come first-served basis so you’d better not slack on this releases because you’ll be muttering What the (another four-letter word) after these disappear quickly from stores shelves. Another view of the socks below, so take a look and let us know if this is the best Kobe release of the year!

Since it opened at Staples Center in Los Angeles last September, Nike Vault has played host to a variety of special releases, all at least somewhat basketball related, and all but one connected to Lakers megastar Kobe Bryant. The only exception was Blake Griffin’s All-Star Sunday visit in the wake of his Kia-leaping victory in the Dunk Contest, but the latest will honor the team for whom the WNBA’s very first jam was scored. Check out this
Mardi Gras LA Sparks colorway on the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011, a festive look that’s sure to draw more male fans than the ladies’ Association itself. The combination of this colorway on the second Hyperfuse model from Nike Basketball feels like something of an anachronism given the past few years of simple ‘mature’ palettes, and they’ll be available in honor of the Sparks’ 15th WNBA season starting at 5pm on Tuesday, June 21st. Click through for more, let us know if you’re planning to get a pair and stick with Sneaker News for the latest Nike Vault release dates.
