The tip-off of a new season brings with it a slew of new signature models. Top of the heap this year is the new Kobe V, a low-cut lightweight that’s inherited most of its good looks from the hugely popular Kobe IV. With a lurid lime sole, red splatter accents and purple foil upper this is a fresh take on the Kobe IV Chaos colourway from earlier this year, which was apparently inspired by Heath Ledger’s Joker from The Dark Knight. Don’t expect these in your Santa stocking this year as they won’t be hitting shelves until December 26th. Thanks to Footlocker for the news.
