Kobe Bryant's 20th NBA season isn't off to a hot start, but that hasn't stopped Nike from continuing to introduce more heat to the Kobe X. Slated to drop next month, comes a "Lava Red" version of Bryant's 10th signature sneaker.

This sneaker uses Hot Lava, University Red, white and black, for an eye-catching colorway that will translate nicely on-court to a lot of NBA uniforms. While we don't think Bryant will lace these up, we wouldn't be surprised to see other NBA players add them to their rotation. This initial look at the sneaker comes in the GS model from footsell, but expect the men's version to look identical. Regardless of how Bryant's body holds up this season, it looks like Nike will keep delivering a healthy dose of new Kobe colorways.

This sneaker will release on Dec. 9, for $180.
