Kobe Bryant, Nike share lightest hoops shoe ever made by the sportswear giant

PHOTOS: Duke Kobe V

Our players weren’t quite as excited as these guys from Cleveland to receive new shoes, but there were definitely some happy Blue Devils in the locker room today when the Duke Kobe V arrived.  The Blue Devil version of the shoe is virtually identical to Kobe’s except with a Duke color scheme and the Duke Iron D on the top of the heel.  Said Andre Dawkins about the shoe, “Oh yeah, it’s nice.  They’re tough.”

Kobe’s version of Nike’s lightest basketball shoe ever made was released in December and the Laker superstar stated at the time, “I wanted to push the envelope with a shoe that meets the demands of my style of play.  The Kobe V is lighter, lower and more stable.”
