Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant isn't playing around at all these days as he just reached 32,293 points on the NBA scoring list, which puts him ahead of legend Michael Jordan. While Nike is sure to drop a celebratory silhouette sometime soon, in the meantime we're given a Nike Kobe 9 EXT KRM in 'Challenge Red.'

As usual, the shoe revels in how high it is by extending well past the ankle, but this time, it's decked out in ballistic mesh and luxurious snakeskin. The tonality of the challenge red upper is broken a bit by a black outsole and hits of metallic silver paneling come in to ramp up the contrast as well.

We're not one to stoke the rumor mill but could this BRED-ish colorway be a nod to the student becoming the teacher as far as points go? We aren't sure, but look out for them to hit retailers like Rock City Kicks on Dec. 20 for $275 a pop.
