Kobe Bryant‘s signature is the latest Nike model to receive the “Think Pink” treatment. The official brand designation for the color is “Pinkfire,” which is descriptively spot-on. And before you scoff at the thought of lacing up a pair of pink shoes, just remember the color has a rich pedigree in sneaker lore, ranging from the Bacons and Neapolitans on down to the Kid Robots. But even more importantly, a portion of the proceeds from sales of this shoe will go to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Real men support a good cause. Look for the Nike Zoom Kobe VI “Think Pink” to hit store shelves on August 26th, with retail set at $130.
