On Kobe’s New Christmas Shoe

If you were a kid, and in the day’s leading up to Christmas your parents told you that you were getting the new Kobe’s to celebrate on Christmas morning, how excited would you have been? Then, how devastated would you have eventually felt when you inevitably found out that those new Kobe’s where in fact the purple, green, and yellow plaid Nike Zoom Kobe VII Christmas Day’s? A shoe that certainly seems destined for the discount aisle at TJ Maxx by this time next Holiday Season. 

Here is what those Christmas Kobe’s look like if you don’t believe me:

In some ways this shoe reminds me of a sweater that Uncle Phil would wear on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.  In other ways this shoe also reminds me of that cruel Christmas morning prank surely playing out on some undeserving kids this holiday season as well.
