Since the tragic death of Kobe Bryant, his signature Basketball Shoe line has been going through ups and downs. Two colorways of his KOBE 5 proto appeared and then quickly disappeared, which depicted the uncertainty about the signature shoe line’s future. But the affordable Mamba Fury has bought some stability when it was released in numerous colorways out of which the latest one is “Lakers” colorway.
This colorway is pretty much inspired/dubbed from the white Uniform of the Los Angeles Lakers. A look at this shoe makes you realize that a lot of elements have been from the other Signature line pieces like Kobe 6, Kobe 8 and Kobe AD. This is a low top shoe primarily made up mesh and synthetic. On the lateral side of the upper, silver speckles are visible both on and just above the swoosh where an on the medial side a plain silver swoosh is used.
Heel spoilers have been used which are purple in color and stitched with yellow. They also contain a DNA like print embossed on the translucent background. The Kobe logo can be observed on the younger and the heel and to add to the aesthetic two pair of Golden eyelets has been used in each pair. The outsole is a bit unusual and is purple on the lateral side and white on the medial.
The Nike Mamba Fury “Lakers” released in Nike France and sold out very quick. It retails for about a $100 dollars.
