We all remember that crazy time when Kobe Bryant was in sneaker free-agency and pulled out some dope kicks every night. You may recall that back when Bryant was in limbo and had no brand to call home, he rocked everything from Jordan to Reebok to Converse and even And1’s. That season Kobe was gifted an Air Jordan 9 PE in a Laker color scheme along with various other retros. Can you imagine if Kobe signed with JB instead of Nike back when he was up for grabs? Sneakerheads would have loved those kicks.
Jordan Brand is sparing no shame this holiday season and bringing out too many kicks to keep track of. This next release is one that is a definite must for the collection. Stand up LakerGang, we’re talking to you. The Air Jordan Retro 9 ‘Lakers’ is everything Kobe fans and sneakerheads could want. A dope sneaker in a colorway that is sure to turn heads and set the ‘fit on fire. This retro features a white leather upper that has concord patent leather overlay and yellow accents on the tongue, heel, and back. The only thing that would make these better is if they came with an 8 on the back, but instead they feature the classic 23. Even if it is that time of year where you’re supposed to be saving for holiday gifts go ahead and treat yourself to a sneaker that you won’t regret copping.
