Is this a must cop for Laker fans? Being that the Nike Kobe 10 Elite Low “Opening Night” comes in colors closely associated to the threads the Lakers wear on the hardwood, how many Kobe fans feel this is Kobe that has to be in your collection?

Whether or not Kobe decides to wear the Nike Kobe 10 Elite Low “Opening Night” on opening night is yet to be determined. What we do know is that the colors used on the shoe have a strong resemblance to what Kobe has worn all of his professional career. The upper is done up in a Court Purple and Hyper Orange combination where the Court Purple takes care of the majority parts on the shoe and the Hyper Orange is used as the accent color. The Flyknit construction on the forefoot comes in a Vivid Purple to add a tonal look on the shoe. Lastly, the sole is also done in similar colors as the purple is seen on the midsole and the outsole comes in a yellow/gold offering. Releasing October 24th for $200, how many of you are picking up a pair?

Author’s Take

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Laker colors on a Kobe, and to be quite honest, I don’t know why. With Kobe’ career coming to an end, this is possible one of the last times you will will able to pick up a Laker inspired colorway on a Kobe sneaker.
