Regular Sneaker News readers will recognize this one from our ongoing NBA Feet series. LA Lakers superduperstar Kobe Bryant has been wearing a player exclusive Nike Zoom Kobe VI colorway on the road in recent games that echoes the newly available gradient option on NIKEiD. The purple-to-black fade is something you can approximate with your iD selections but in the words of another global media icon, “You will never get this.” Or should we say, most of us won’t, cos some absolute fire just hit the ‘Bay and now someone with deep pockets will have a scorching hot piece of memorabilia. Check out this game-issued, autographed gradient ZK6, a shoe signed by the Black Mamba himself and in a color that compliments the shoe’s design, no less! These would be an amazing addition to any Kobe completist’s collection and you can see more shots after the jump, then check out the auction courtesy of nytryder8 on eBay.
