New Kobe Bryant Nike shoe honors Bruce Lee

Martial artist and actor Bruce Lee is a legend who popularized the action movies which focused on real action rather than Hollywood fiction. Though his career was cut short by a tragic accident his legacy still lives on till this day. One of the most famous movies which starred Bruce Lee was Enter the Dragon in which he showcased his fighting skills and also it was the last movie that featured Lee as he passed away before the release of the film.

Nike Zoom Kobe V pays homage to the fallen star with the Bruce Lee edition sneaker taking inspiration from the most iconic colors of Bruce Lee. The yellow and black colorways are taken directly from the jumpsuit that Lee wore in the 1978 film “The Game of Death” and it is translated on the Laker’s yellow upper, laces and midsole with black accents and Swoosh. Another graphic symbol Lee is known for is the four blood red claw marks that signify the damage he took in the 1973 film “Enter The Dragon” and that is reflected on the side of the toe section and in the red color on the heel. These are part of the Spring/Summer 2010  collection set for global release and have been recently launched. via: Marqueesole

Considering all charges were dropped when it was found out the girl lied and was in fact consensual. Guess now that the nazi's have stopped selling shirts you don't have anywhere to get all "WHITE PRIDE" anymore. I guess Tiger is just white enough for you huh?

It's funny the way Tiger Woods has been punished by sponsors and the media since it was revealed that he had consensual sex with some women, yet Kobe's career has flourished since the rape incident.On another note, I also find it funny that Bruce Lee is wearing white sneakers in the photo of him in the jumpsuit.

Actually, Kobe's loves Kill Bill, and Uma Thurman wore an outfit paying homage to Bruce Lee. He calls himself "The Black Mamba" just like her character.
