Thanks to a few well-timed releases, the Nike Kobe 10 is shaping up to be quite the summer sizzler. As colorways get more complicated, now the shoe is poised to launch in a colorway that gives credibility to the phrase "less is more."

The sneaker is seen here in a black build with a healthy dose of bright crimson on the side and it proves to be a pretty potent mix. There's also a really cool visual effect created by the vibrant hue bubbling beneath the black mesh around the toebox and mid-foot. Sure, these are made to ball in, but colorways like this are tailor-made for street style as well.

These are set to hit retailers like Rock City Kicks on June 18 and they'll be priced at $180. This looks like the type of sneaker that can hold you down all summer.
