Averaging 32.7 points and tossing out 15.3 dimes a night over his past three games, Tyrese Haliburton has been on an absolute tear since his first-ever All-Star selection. Near exclusively dressing each night in one of Kobe Bryant’s signatures from The Swoosh, Haliburton took the court last night against the Houston Rockets in a never-before-seen custom infusing the elements of the Kobe 6 with the body of LeBron’s Air Zoom Generation.

Widely popularized by NFL players transferring the aesthetic of iconic hoop silhouettes onto their performance-based cleats, Haliburton took a similar approach by casting the Zoom Generation’s upper in a dominant mix of snakeskin textures derived from the base layer of Bryant’s sixth signature. Mimicking the latter pair’s “Black Del Sol” color blocking with a mix of jet-black and yellow-gold, the Zoom Generation inspiration finishes its construction above with a crisp white Swoosh across the vamp. Elsewhere, the Kobe 6 Protro’s renovated Zoom sole unit is affixed underfoot for a more advanced cushioning system in tandem with the appearance of its staple heel counter.

Customized exclusively for Haliburton, enjoy a first look at the hybrid Nike Zoom Kobe 6 x Air Zoom Generation “Black Del Sol” below while we await the pair’s next appearance alongside the Pacers’ star point guard.
