With Kobe Bryant’s 2011 All-Star MVP award and sunny southern California as the focal point to this release, detailed images reiterate this model’s canon, volt, purple venom, and turf orange colorway and intricate details which include images of sharks, water, and palm. Where each model in the Kobe Prelude Pack features an aesthetic inspired by a particular classic art movement, the Kobe VI goes a bit more contemporary. The multiclored flora-and-fauna printed that covers the upper is inspired by the painted walls of Venice Beach, home of some of Southern California’s legendary outdoor basketball courts. That unique print is beautifully contrasted by an orange liner and volt Swoosh, while solid green complements on the midsole and heel. Finally, a translucent outsole adds an icyness below.
