A Daring Red Pair Of Kobe Bryant Shoes

Have you watched a college or professional basketball game lately? I don't mean yesterday or even the day before that. It is September and obviously basketball is not in season. When I say lately, I am referring to a NCAA or NBA basketball game played last seaon.  In that context, have you seen a game lately? If you have, you may or may not have noticed an unusually large amount of low-cut basketball shoes that are currently adorning the feet of these players. What is going on here? Well, apparently the low-cut basketball shoe has become the shoe of choice for most basketball players, amatuer and professional.

The low-cut basketball sneaker has hitorically been viewed as unacceptable footwear by most ballers.  Wearing such a shoe was seen as an invitation to injury, an accident waiting to happen. Not anymore. The recent technology in basketball shoes and the comfort that a low-cut shoe provides, have created a tidal wave of great looking, high performance low-cut kicks.The Kobe Bryant signature sneaker line that began in 2008  was the beginning of the trend of wearing low-cut basketball shoes that is now sweeping the nation, and world.  The Kobe IV was the first high performance low-cut basketball shoe that dared to take on the mid-cut basketball sneakers that dominated the hardcourt at the time.

In 2010, still daring the basketball shoe market to change it's ways, the Kobe V released in a wide variety of styles and colorways.  More different styles and colorways ever seen on any one model of basketball shoes. The Kobe V did so, and dropped in an even lower cut version than seen on the Kobe IV.

One of the colorways released that year was daring indeed.  The Kobe V "All-Star" edition was dropped in a Daring Red colorway and was made for Kobe Bryant's appearance in the 2010 NBA All-Star game. The Daring Red colorway also "dared" to use a wood-grained design, meant to replicate the hardwood of the basketball court, on the forefoot portion of the shoe's upper. It was a very innovative and creative design idea that had never been seen on a shoe before. The shoe also featured black on the midsole, Swoosh, laces,and the Kobe logo. The shoe also featured a translucent outsole. On the heel of the insole Nike placed an All-Star game patch that included Kobe’s nickname "The Black Mamba", the year, and the words “Three X MVP".

Nike shoes for basketball have obviously evolved quite quickly over the last few years. Technological design has allowed them to dare to make the low-cut basketball shoes some of the most high perfomance, lightweight sneakers for the court. They are now more popular than ever. More models and colorways are on their way. Bring 'em on!
