His vital B-Balling limbs may be in tatters, but Kobe Bryant's signature sneaker line will fight on as if its star is still punishing the paint. Here we get the first look at the Kobe 10, and you'll immediately notice some major differences to its predecessor. Firstly, the cut-level yo-yoing of the Kobe line continues, as the 10 returns to the Low-top formation; the Flyknit upper is also gone, with fat mesh is subbed in; and downstairs the Lunarlon cushioning has vanished into thin (Zoom) Air.
The first Kobe 10 colourway to pop out (like Kobe's shoulder) is this 'Blue Lagoon', which is due to arrive in stores on February 7. Will the Black Mamba ever drop his mambo number five in these on court, though?
