China has always been big on sports, just like the states. Just look at the Olympic medal count and you’ll find China in the top 5 for sure. The Chinese are not only competitive athletes, but they are very passionate about sports too. They are big fans of players that aren’t Chinese too, showing their respect for the best athletes in the world. China happens to be Basketball crazy too. This emergence came as Yao Ming entered the NBA years ago. His popularity has given attention to the Chinese pool of players and their talents on the court. But its not fair to say that the more popular players even in China are some that start with a name like Kobe Bryant.
Can you believe it? Even in China Kobe is huge. There’s this video online of Kobe coming out to fans in China, and the fans were chanting his name as if he was a god there. Now that’s some respect. So much respect that maybe it drove Nike to do a China inspired shoe for Kobe. Hence the Kobe 6 China was born. The Kobe 6 already looks like a stunner on the court. But the China version, even better. This Kobe 6 is a little different with the color scheme. The Kobe 6 China sports a gray scale with a purple color way.
Under the gray-scale like material is a hint of reddish pink topped off with a purple Nike swoosh and the Kobe symbol on the tongue being red. It’s not like Lebron’s version of his China shoe where he goes with more red and puts on a Chinese lion. Kobe’s version however is a sleeker version as the essence of China is detailed lightly. Nike really does have remarkable ideas when coming up with designs, and the Kobe 6 China is definitely an eye-opener for Chinese and worldwide basketball sneaker fans alike.
