The Black Mamba’s post-retirement signature kicks are showing no signs of slowing down: Nike is set to kick off the month of July with an “Igloo” edition of the Kobe A.D. and now you can add a “Purple Stardust” colorway to the fray. The perfect homage to Bryant’s Lakers heyday, the kicks come decked out in purple and sport black accents on the branding, speckled midsole and rubber outsole. Finally, to bring the L.A. inspiration full circle, golden Mamba logos decorate the insoles.
