Kobe Bryant Stirs Up L.A Beef With Rivalry Inspired Shoe

Kobe Bryant has had one of the greatest runs ever in the NBA as well as in signature sneakers. While we've seen plenty of colorways over the years, one thing that has never changed has been The Mamba's love and dedication to his adopted home city of Los Angeles and his Lakers. It looks like Kobe and Nike have decided to stir the pot a bit as a Clipper's themed shoe has made its way into the line. The Nike Zoom Kobe Venomenon 5 will be featured in a "Lob City" makeup that is part tribute and part jab at the Lakers' perceived "little brother" in not only the city but also their own home arena! 

The shoe features a red mesh upper while a black Swoosh, inner lining and tongue provide a bit of neutrality. We see a powder blue Flywire come into play for support as well as a matching midsole/heel panel that lets us know what this shoe is all about. The icy translucent outsole closes things out and gives way to an amazingly well put together shoe.

We know that Kobe is the ultimate competitor and gamesman and this is just another awesome example of those traits. While these have yet to hit our shores, ATAF in Poland has these ready to ship.

No U.S release date has been announced but make sure to stick with SneakerShouts for any and all updates as they happen.
