Kobe Bryant is a divisive character when he's on the court. But what's undeniable is that it's a shame his career season ended the way it did, especially with all the proper sneakers hes been dropping. Nike might be releasing the best sneakers of Bryant's career. The latest colorway of the Kobe 8 that will probably sell out before you drive yourself down to the local Footlocker is the "Venice Beach" make-up. Slated to release May 25, this version of the features a turquoise midsole, and an upper that's splashes of red/orange, light blue, and yellow. And don't forget the icy sole. These sneakers will perfect for summer, so don't keep them deadstock until fall.
