What if the Charlotte Hornets never traded Kobe Bryant? While we can never guess how that would have turned out there is one thing I can guarantee that this is what the adidas EQT Elevation would have looked like back in 1997. Instead Kobe Bryant has had and still is having a great career for the LA Lakers.
Now that Kobe’s first unofficial signature shoe pays tribute to one of the most craziest trades in NBA history. The shoe features a teal base with snake skin details representing Kobe nickname “Black Mamba”. The 3 strips are purple and black covers the tongue. The holographic heel tabs feature the numbers 8 and 13 for Kobe’s number and position where he was drafter respectfully. Teal, purple and white also covers the outsole.
Still with out an official release date let us know how you feel about these in the comments and stay tuned to Sneaker Bar for more updates.
