The good news for Lakers fans: Kobe Bryant will be back on the court this season. The bad news: he’s old now, and this may very well be his last hurrah before he calls it quits. But there’s more good news for sneaker fans, as Kobe will be back in new looks for the Kobe 10, beginning with this Elite Low for opening night. The shoe sports a Lakers colorway appropriate for Kobe’s triumphant return after almost an entire season lost to injury, featuring a Court Purple Flyknit upper contrasted by lighter purple on the toe and golden accents throughout. A special military-inspired tongue logo features the Latin phrase “Historia Est Magistra Vitae”, which translates to “History is Life’s Teacher”. Certainly a must-have release for die-hard Kobe sneaker fans, this shoe that will commence what could be Kobe’s historic final season arrives at retail on October 30th.
