Tis The Season with The Nike Kobe 10 Elite Grinch

First seen on the Kobe 6, the special Grinch colorway is slated to make its return on the Nike Kobe 10 Elite just in time for Christmas.

Specifically listed as a custom NIKEiD option, instead of a general release, the festive theme has been one of the more popular finishes from Bryant’s signature lineage. This unexpected return may seem fitting as this 2015-16 NBA season will be his last. Overall, the low-top sneaker is derived from the fictional character created by Dr. Seuss, and defined as being grumpy, filled with anti-holiday spirit, as well as boasting a predominantly Green hue.

Hints of Red provided by the laces further encapsulate the holiday moniker, while a contrasting Black Swoosh is prominent on its side panels. Finished off with a White midsole unit and Green-colored outsole, you can find this limited edition variation directly at NIKEiD starting December 22nd for $245.

Author’s Take

I’ve shared before that I’m a big admirer of this silhouette’s design. I wasn’t really into Kobes back then and especially when this particular colorway came out on the 6. It’s nice to see it revived again so fans can enjoy.
