Yesterday, the FedEx fairy rang again bearing more holiday cheer – the Zoom Kobe 8 System in the Christmas colorway. I’ve wanted to try out the new Kobes but wanted to wait for a more muted colorway not inspired by animals. After seeing the merry treats in person, I’ve changed my mind about holding out.
My friend asked me “Are you really going to wear those?” Why, hell yes. The more obnoxious a colorway, the more amazing as long as there’s a balance in how the colors are placed. I have no idea about the rhinoceros viper the shoe pulls its pattern from but the colors explode – yet evenly dispersed – on the shoe. The texture and feel of the Engineered Mesh is an added bonus as well.
Since we have to do the in-laws for Christmas Eve then my parents on Christmas day, the LeBron joints and these will both get their proper holiday play in the spotlight.
Thanks to my friends at Nike Basketball for the gift and the handwritten note, which is really cool by itself. Watch for the full holiday collection to hits stores on December 26.
