The long-awaited "Eggplant" Nike Sportswear Air Force 1 High Foamposite is finally dropping—with a twist. Designed in tribute to Kobe Bryant, the shoe features Kobe's "sheath" logo on the tongue, his signature beneath the translucent blue outsole, and some additional Laker purple (or, to be proper, Forum Blue) on the branding and pulltab. The removable strap is black 3M, the laces are waxed. Due out February in China, they should see release in the US sometime after that. (And if an eggplant Kobe Foamposite sounds familiar, it should.)
