Nike Basketball has partnered with Aston Martin to introduce the Nike Kobe Bryant (Aston Martin Edition) footwear pack at STAPLES Center. It started with the viral web video of Kobe Bryant jumping over an Aston Martin DB9, and was fueled by consumer demand that resulted in this high magnitude collaboration between Nike Basketball and the luxury sports car manufacturer.
Aston Martin-inspired colorways of the Zoom Kobe V and Nike Hyperdunk DB9 were available for sale to a select number of Kobe fans. Paying astute attention to detail, the lining in the Hyperdunk DB9′s were cut made from the same leather from the interior of the Aston Martin DB9. That puts it over-the-top for me!
