You’ve already seen the All-Star Game shoes of Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose and Kevin Garnett, so now here’s your opportunity to peep the crown jewels of hoops feet — Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. What you’ve got here are the red Nike Zoom Kobe VI and the blue Nike LeBron 8 V/2. Guess which shoe belongs to which player.
Since these are for the All-Star Game, they’re super bright, which is basically a given. The other real cool thing about both of these is that the tongue is made from a reflective material, and when you move it back and forth, the logo morphs from each player’s signature logo to their conference’s logo. That little feature is included on Kevin Durant’s shoe as well, and it’s a nice little touch. Makes it just a bit special for the game.
The shoes will have a limited release tomorrow with the Kobes retailing for $135 and the LeBrons running you a cool $165. Pricey, but you have to pay for exclusivity. At least that’s what my timeshare company told me.
Personally, I like the LeBrons. The blue looks really intense, and because it’s such a big shoe the All-Star Game details really pop. Hit the jump for a few more pictures, including the morphing tongue. Head over to Nice Kicks for a bunch of very detailed pictures. Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments.
