Kobe Bryant has been a staple of Nike basketball for the last few decades now. His shoes are a huge hit amongst basketball players and considering just how good Kobe is, it's understandable why. Bryant is a legend and just like Michael Jordan and LeBron James, young kids look up to him. When a child walks into Foot Locker in search of some new basketball shoes, they're probably going to want something from a recognizable name. Sometimes though, that can pose a problem for parents who have to foot the bill as these shoes can be pretty expensive. Luckily, Kobe and Nike are actively trying to create more affordable options for people as the $100 Nike Mamba Focus released today.

The shoe comes in two colorways, one black, and one white. When looking at the upper, it becomes obvious that this shoe is meant to emulate the skin of a snake. Kobe's signature logo can be found on both the tongue and back heel of the shoe, making this sneaker unmistakably Bryant's. While it may not be as popular as Kobe's classic sneakers from the past, this shoe definitely serves its purpose as a great option for those who want something a little bit less pricey. 

These can be purchased right now over at Nike.com for $100 USD.
