When Kobe Bryant steps on the court he's facing a natural enemy. Whether the odds are stacked or an easy win is in sight, the Black Mamba’s killer-instinct style is put into play. Dating back to his high school days, Bryant’s relentless effort has been put forth.
Drawing inspirations from one of his earliest rivals, The Kobe X Elite “Rivalry” pays homage to Chester High School, a team Bryant helped defeat by scoring 31 second-half points in a semi-final matchup.
Much like Chester’s school colors, the Flyknit upper features a two-tone orange and a grey toe cap. The color scheme continues with a orange translucent outsole. The bright hits of orange are contrasted by a white midsole and black Swoosh.
You can grab a pair of the Nike Kobe X Elite “Rivalry” on Nike Store for $200.
