Whoo, it’s been a great August for new basketball shoes so leave it to Nike to put the exclaimation mark on a nice month overall.
Tomorrow (the 27th) we’ll see the release of the latest Kobe X colorway “Overcome” seen in the gallery above. This is one of my favorite colorways of the signature with the grape purple, teal, and black all clashing beautifully. I also gotta cop that tee up above too.
Here’s the always motivating explanation of the namesake, via Nike:
He didn’t need to head to the line as trainers pleaded with him to head for the locker room, but he came back. He didn’t need to rehab harder than any human should have for the ‘15 season, but he came back. He didn’t need to keep training after he tore his shoulder, but he’ll come back … because one thing Kobe knows is how to overcome.
To top it off, Nike Basketball also released today the Kyrie 1 “Australia” colorway. Kyrie’s first signature gets the beautiful greens of the Australia logo and it’s by far his best colorway to date. I’m a fan of Uncle Drew, but I can’t in good conscience buy a pair of Kyries when he’s gonna go up against my Bulls again this season. Especially on a day when the Rose’s come out and look nice too. But hey, for all you Cavs and/or Aussie fans, scroll below and cop the collection.
