A True All Star Of Kobe Bryant Shoes

Kobe Bryant, 13-time NBA All Star. Kobe Bryant, 4-time All Star MVP. That, my friends, is plenty of time spent on the court in an uniform as an All-Star. No surprise really, we all know Kobe is and will be one of the greatest players in history to play the game of basketball. With so much experience as an All Star it would only make sense that Nike would create some of the most memorable Kobe Bryant shoes. Shoes made especially for the All Star games that he competed in. This past year saw several All Star game editions. There was a 3D pair, a red colorway representing the West team, and the "Orange County" colorway. The fourth colorway released during this past year's event in Los Angeles might have been the best.

Dubbed the "East LA" edition, this shoe is one of the most unique Kobe VI's we have ever seen. A scenic graphic of the Los Angeles skyline is intergrated into the deep blue color of the snakeskin textured upper. Wow! It is not often that such detail goes into a basketball shoe. Speaking of detail, the artwork on the heel cup resembles a tatoo. This tatoo style artwork is also seen on the insoles of the shoes. Red accents adorn the tongue and outsole as well the heel cup of the shoe. The Nike Swoosh appears to be missing from the upper. That's because it is also a deep blue color and blends into the upper. Add a translucent outsole and you have got one of the coolest looking sneakers that Nike has ever created.

This special All Star game edition, like all of the Kobe VI's, features the scale-like snakeskin textured upper. An upper that many sneakerheads considered to be a gimmick when the shoe first released. Myself included. It turns out, this was no gimmick. This unique textured upper molds perfectly to the foot and is just part of the high performance elements that make up the Kobe VI. It has alway been a perfect upper to create some of the most mind-blowing colorways a basketball shoe has ever seen. The "East LA" is just one of many unbelievablely unique colorways that Nike has used on the Kobe VI.

Nike shoes for basketball have dropped in the past is some pretty amazing models and styles. But, the colorways that they have dropped in the past, although amazing, don't compare to the colorways the Kobe VI has been dropped in. For the last three years, the signature lines of Kobe Bryant shoes have left no colorway behind. Actually I hope they have left a few behind, I can't wait to see the newest Kobe VI colorway.
