UPDATE: Couple of changes for you to jot down, fam. Nike has brought the release on this pair forward by a day and dubbed them the ‘Majors’. With Kobe’s reign coming to an end. Through a bold use of colour, Nike says that this release ‘celebrates Kobe as a role model’, specifically his inspiration on the MVPs of tomorrow. Pay your respects to the Black Mamba and hit up your local Nike Basketball account on December 8th.
Hot Lava is the new Nike colour of the month, fam. We’ve already got a taste across from slew of different silhouettes from the Swoosh, but this Kobe 10 teaser is our first full taste of the racy red coverall from their basketball department. This edition of the KB10 utilises a myriad of said Hot Lava, University Red and Bright Crimson in its fused, one-piece construction, accented by a sliver of black in the heel and a booming white check illuminating the midfoot. Expected to release in a full-family size run, look for them hitting all the usual Swoosh accounts commencing December 9.
