Kobe’s Christmas game shoe is…. um…. colorful

Dec 13, 2011, 8:36 AM EDT


You are really going to get to test the color on that new 60-inch plasma screen you are getting for Christmas.

What you see to the right (and larger below) are the Christmas version of Kobe Zoom VII from our friends at Nike (via The Basketball Jones). Kobe will be wearing these on opening day/Christmas day in an apparent attempt to blind Derrick Rose.

Remember that last year Kobe went with “Grinch” green shoes, but this year he and Nike decided that they would spice it up with some purple. And Cheetah spots.

Kids, you can be the first on your block to have these for Christmas. These are way cooler than that iPad 2 you keep asking for.

      Wait, try this: “… what outfit can you find to wear with them?” or this: “… what outfit can be found to wear with them?”

      Instead of: “what outfit, can you found to wear with them?” I hope for your sake, it’s a typo.

    Well on the bright side there’s a 100% chance these are radioactive so he may come out of this with super powers.

    Looks like something Sir Elton John would wear or Pee Wee Herman….

    Looks like it was made out of all the left over material from other shoes no one bought.

    The Oregon Ducks football team wouldn’t even wear these.

    It is a tribute to Lamar Odom for hooking up with the ugly Kardashian.
