Nike throw up casual-inspired releases for all of its major ball boots and we reckon the Kobe 'Lifestyle' series has been the most on-point. Now we see the first version of a Lifestyle version of the new Kobe 9 and there looks to be quite a bit of potential in the silhouette. Our SF intern pointed out its similarity to the Skystepper from last year, and while there's definitely a resemblance, we reckon the Kobe nails the good livin' vibes a bit more. Purped out Lakers lining, gold eyelets and a scaly snakeskin print makes for an intricate but chilled shoe – we really wanna see these under some jeans to judge for real. You can grab 'em from Nice Kicks.
