Dave McMenamin's post on LA Lakers | Latest updates on Sulia
Kobe showed up to the interview in his 1-of-1 special edition Nikes he calls the "Medical Mambas" ...
Here's the story behind how the sneakers came to be:
"We were at the doctor’s office and we were just kind of going through what the next progression was going to be and they wanted me to be in a sneaker with a heel lift and I said, ‘Well, let me just hit Nike up and see what they can do.’ This was literally a matter of two weeks and Nike, the resources that they have and the creative people that they have, they literally put it together in two weeks for me."
The shoes are bright canary yellow with a thick wedge-like black heel. Not exactly the most fashionable of kicks.
Has he been able to integrate them into his everyday outfits?
"I struggle. I struggle to rock them with jeans. The colors are kind of all over the place, but I just act like they’re my Picassos or something. You don’t have to match everything so I can pull them off with jeans."
