When Nike says „Special“ they mean special! The Christmas special edition of the Nike Zoom Kobe VI comes with a really flashy colorway.

This is probably the dream for all sneaker-loving gamers out there. Nike and Sony teamed up again to create a sneaker inspired by the PlayStation. This time around the sneaker of choice is the Nike Zoom Huarache Trainer and the specific inspiration is the „Move“, a Nintendo Wii like control system. The kicks have PlayStation branding on the tongue and come in a black leather upper a bright blue secondary color, which rests on a translucent sole. The Swoosh has a very techie feel and changes color depending on the angle that lights its surface. Unfortunately these will never hit retail and are only available to „Friends & Family“ at Nike and Sony. Nevertheless see more detailed pics after the jump.
For their newest Dunk Low called „Yellow Curb“ Nike has gone a little wild. The upper for this pair of Dunk Lows employs a nylon toebox and tongue, completed with leather Swoosh and panels, and grey tonal elephant print accents that are enlarged and extended onto the midsoles. Right by the Swoosh, Nike has added a little embroidery of a feature, for a little tribal note. The insoles have been printed with special graphics as well. See more pics after the jump.
