As a child growing up in Italy, Kobe Bryant fell in love with the most popular sport in the world, Football, or as we call it in America, Soccer. Kobe played the sport growing up and a couple of years back, Kobe blasted a goal for a Nike commercial, showing off his footy skills. On several occasions, Nike has also spoken of his admiration for Ronaldinho, one of Soccer’s most electric athletes. Putting all of this together, Nike is set to release the “Ronaldinho” Kobe Nike Hyperdunk. Inspired by Ronaldinho’s old FC Barcelona Kit, the “Ronaldinho” Kobe Nike Hyperdunk features a Blue, Maroon, Black, and Yellow upper with a Soccer crest on the tongue that features Kobe’s #24 and his logo.
Last we heard, the Ronaldinho Kobe Nike Hyperdunk was set to release very soon in limited numbers to celebrate the opening of the House of Hoops in Los Angeles. Of course, things can change.
