Kobe Sporting Clippers Colors and Repping Lob City

New, comments

Okay, so it's not Kobe the player, but actually the newest Nike shoes that bear his name. The Nike Zoom Kobe Venomenon 5 comes in a "Lob City" color scheme, which includes red, black, and ice blue.

So the colors don't exactly match the Clippers' color scheme, but it's pretty close. They got the red and black right, just missed the blue a little. Anyway, with such mixed reaction to the new CP3 IX leak recently, some Clippers fans might actually prefer picking a Kobe-branded shoe to show some Clippers love.

Now, the fact that these are Kobe Bryant shoes will probably turn many Clippers fans off considering wearing them, but they do look good. The fact that Nike added "Lob City" to the name might show that they are in fact marketing the shoe to Clippers fans, even though Kobe plays for their cross-hall rival.
