The only guys who could have you more shocked at a special edition package and its contents than the ‘Snake Crate’, it’s fitting to see this viral hit from The Lonely Island featuring Justin Timberlake make its mark on a pair of Nike Zoom Kobe IVs. The ‘Motherlover’ Zoom Kobe 4 was created in 2009 for a 4on4 basketball tournament where a Nike Basketball crew of Jason Petrie, Kyle Yamaguchi and others rocked the JT and Andy Samberg-inspired look and are apparently the only guys who ever got a pair (aside from the pair pictured here). And we’re glad we have these photos now, so they’re not the only ones who’ve seen them too. This teal design accented by early ’90s tribal graphics and character drawings from the music video will have you giggling as soon as you see the lyrics printed on their insoles. Click through to see more images of Alan Leung‘s sample pair, let us know if you’d like to see another SNL skit immortalized on a Nike Basketball collaboration and stick with Sneaker News for updates in case this pair happens to release.
