An Epic Pair Of Kobe Bryant Shoes

There are many, many epic Nike shoes for basketball. With all the great players that have rocked Nike basketball kicks over the last 20 years, it is impossible to single out one shoe, and one shoe only, and label it as the most epic pair of Nike basketball shoes ever made. For sneakerheads, that is a very good thing. Actually, a great thing. The more epic signature basketball sneakers, the better. One of the truly epic Nike kicks is epic for more than one reason. The Kobe V "Bruce Lee" is epic for a variety of reason: colorway, availability, and namesake.

Colorway-No other shoe, basketball, or otherwise looks this good in yellow. The Kobe V "Bruce Lee" is predominately yellow for a reason. The shoe replicates the the yellow body suit worn by Lee in the movie "The Game of Death". Black accents on the upper and heel cup are used here while red accents are used in the form scratch marks that reside on the lower forefoot black forefoot accents. Red is also used as Kobe's signature. The red scratch marks are from another classic Lee movie, "Enter the Dragon". There isn't a nicer colorway out there on any signature sneaker.

Availability-These kicks were tough to get! Just by simply getting a pair of these shoes in your possession was quite a feat. The Kobe V "Bruce Lee" was a very limited release. Just a handful of House of Hoops locations across the country made these available for purchase. They weren't available for very long. All it took was about an hour for these to sell out. If you weren't able to cop a pair when they dropped, there is still . A pair of these beauties will cost you around $250.

Namesake-The name says it all. As Kobe Bryant is to basketball, Bruce Lee is to martial arts. Legendary! There will not be another icon in martial arts that will ever eclipse Bruce Lee in popularity and the influence he had on his art. Bruce Lee's Hong Kong and Hollywood- produced films elevated the genre and himself to iconic status. His martial art style alone changed the way Americans viewed the Eastern-based martial arts. He singlehandedly changed the way the entire world viewed martial arts.

Kobe Bryant's affinity for martial arts and his admiration of Bruce Lee were the inspiration for one of the most epic Kobe Bryant shoes for basketball ever made. It was Kobe himself who dedicated this shoe to Lee. In fact, Kobe still practices the hybrid fighting system and life philosophy that Lee embodied. Epic!
