Beethoven-Nike & Kobe’s Greatest Symphony



Beethoven-Nike & Kobe's Greatest Symphony

I don’t mean to sound like an extreme case of ‘Common Sense’, but can I borrow around 200 dollars?

I’ll have it back to you some time after the 16th August! Sound specific enough for you? That’s when Nike and their Mamba muse release their latest and ninth ‘Elite Lows’, noted as the ‘Beethoven’s’ and it might just be the best composition from the pair yet.

Sure those peach jams…WOW! I could wear a peach for hours and as for Nike’s legacy; it rests completely untouched in an ‘Air Jordan’ trophy cabinet in the kicks Hall Of Fame. Still the brand and the Bryant that revolutionized the sport of basketball and its footwear with the low tops that every one converses over like Chuck Taylor is about to take another step into hip hoop culture like the iconic player himself.

Inspired by Vino’s master muse and the great German composer these are classics like old Reebok’s and are an ode to the 9th Symphony.

More than ever they will also look great fashioning your day to day, from the Summer shorts to those low cut blue jeans. The classic trainer look of black and white is simple but sleek court chic. With it’s black lines on a white sneaker canvas it looks like notes on a song that Beethoven could have composed himself.
