Nike Trainer 1.2 Kobe & LeBron

words_Nick Engvall

Kobe and LeBron will forever be compared to each other. On the court, off the court, and even in the world of sneakers. Whether it be their latest signature models, which seem to always be highly debated, or the colorways that these two incredible basketball players inspire, like these two upcoming colorways of the Nike Trainer 1.2.

For the Kobe Bryant-inspired Trainer 1.2, grey with the Los Angeles Lakers colors of purple and gold are combined with black snakeskin-like details to properly represent the Black Mamba. While the LeBron James-inspired Trainer 1.2 features the navy and burgundy colorways of King James’ former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Look for these to be available at Eastbay soon.

    I like Lebron much better than Kobe but as for these shoes the Kobe colorway wins hands down!

    technically the lebron colorway is irrelevant,they mustve made these before “the decision”

  9. Y says:

    might as well name it a USA colorway rather than LeBron Cavs days colorway. nice kicks tho!

    Gotta say i like the Kobe ones better.

  11. nickair75 says:

  12. [the watchman] says:

    A great kick. Nike has yet to do it justice w/ the colorways. Whoever is doing color for the recent cross trainers is garbage. Ruining a lot of really good designs.
