Kobe Bryant’s love of soccer has been one of the most highly documented cross-sport love affairs. The baller raised in Italy has involved himself in various projects outside of basketball, which bodes well with Nike’s own agenda of cross-promotion. While this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a Barcelona collaboration with a Kobe Bryant signature sneaker, this two-pack of Nike Kobe Zoom VIIs are arguably the boldest.
An aqua blue and orange colorway is further complemented by a bright yellow and blue, each possessing Barca’s crest on the tongue. The two shoes will release as Euro-exclusives and select Nike and House of Hoops retailers.
