Maybe it’s just because I grew up in the 90s, but when I saw the shoes Kobe Bryant plans to wear on Christmas Day I immediately thought of Nickelodeon. These bad boys look like something that would give you an edge on a game show like Global GUTS or Family Double Dare. Check out these pictures that SneakerFiles.com shared with us via The Basketball Jones:
Those are the official Nike Zoom Year of the Dragon Kobe VII’s, and for some reason I kind of like them. They certainly have nothing on the Marty McFly sneakers, however. I like the whole cartoon monster Rugrats (I’ll stop with the Nickelodean references now) type of look. In no way do they match the standard Laker uniform, but it is a special day. The lockout is ending and Christmas time will be upon us. There’s no better time to go wild with a new pair of kicks.
