One of the Kobe IV’s that sport a good chunk of black on them are the ones that also sport varsity blue and red accents. But now there are shots of another pair that sports a good amount of black.

There still isn’t any word regarding an official release date, but you can check out more pictures of these “Gradient Lakers” Nike Kobe IV’s after the jump to see if these peak your interest.
