Kobe Bryant's worth ethic and intensity have been well documented. A student of the game, Kobe puts as much work on the mental aspect of the sport as he does the physical. Well, it appears the "Black Mamba's" mind is serving as inspiration for his new sneaker.

No, these aren't the new Kobe 10s. But it is a new Kobe model and it's called the Nike KB Mentality. Courtesy of the Kicksologists, images of the new silhouette have emerged and Kobe fans should be excited. Featuring a low-cut style that has been synonymous with many of Kobe's signature sneakers over the past few years, this new model makes use of Hyperfuse and mesh on the upper allowing for lightweight performance and breathability. Bryant's signature Sheath logo is seen on the tongue and is also embossed on the insole. The aggressive design of the outsole leads one to assume that this could possibly be an outdoor model. Having the decked out in "Triple Black" lends a bit of credence to that line of thinking. No official release date has been released, but expect these to drop some time in 2015. Stay tuned for more information.
