Known as the “Black Mamba”, it seems appropriate that they are snake skin-style in the purple and yellow Los Angeles Lakers colors. These kicks also feature a unique clear reptile skin-like coating. In the design of both right and left sneakers, a purple Mamba logo was placed on the tongue of the shoe with “Mamba” nickname on the verso exclusive to KOBE along with his number “24” in purple on the sides. Bryant’s facsimile signature is also present on the back heels. Added to the exclusivity factor, is that they are marked on the interior tagging, “PROMO SAMPLE – 20131211”
Kobe did autograph each one of the sneakers in black felt tip pen – the one on the right sneaker shows some transfer marks “7”. The left is a solid “9”. Although it is unknown if it is game use, the sneakers do show some wear with scuff marks, soiling on the exterior and interior foot impressions.
