Well, you can't say Kobe Bryant isn't trying to be interesting. The Los Angeles Lakers star certainly wins the award for most unique shoes on Christmas Day. I can't decide whether I love or despise them, but I can't say I'm neutral. I've been staring at them for a solid 15 minutes and I still don't even know. That shade of green is at least a cool throwback to my childhood, since they don't put that color on anything anymore. Here are Kobe's Nikes that he'll be wearing today.
Picture of the sneakers comes via NBC's Darren Rovell on WhoSay. I think that if I saw someone wearing these, I'd compliment them on how cool their shoes were, but I wouldn't be caught dead wearing them myself. Does that even make sense?
