A few days ago, DeMar DeRozan and Kobe Bryant were seen wearing a new edition of the Nike Kobe A.D. Today, official shots have surfaced of the same model in a new color scheme. Boasting a slip-on ankle entry, you’ll find a mix of black, purple and silver with a hint of volt accents. The model carries out Kobe Bryant‘s low-cut tradition in addition to subtle messages throughout. Down each tongue, you’ll find what seems to be commemorative numbers which may honor great Lakers of the past. The right heel sees Kobe branding in purple, blue, red and yellow with the left heel adding Bryant’s signature logo.

There’s currently no confirmed launch date for this iteration but stay tuned for additional release details in the coming months. In related Nike Basketball news, you can check out the Nike Air Foamposite One Pro “Sequoia.”
