The design thinking behind Kobe’s sneakers have always been a fusion between quickness and finesse. It was only fitting when they named these ‘Bruce Lee’.
I do everything with the Kobe IX since they were released in 2014. Grocery shopping, moving into my new apartment…including basketball (This shot was taken just before a game).
Growing up watching his films, one could see the similarities between both legends: blistering-quick attacks (physical) and fundamentals and instinctual behaviour (philosophy).
‘PURPLE & GOLD’ – for the younger audience, (above) that’s former LA Laker and legend, Kareem Abdul Jabbar facing off against Bruce in the 1978 classic; ‘Game of Death’.
The Black Mamba, of course.
