Kobe Bryant picks winner of Nike shoe contest

Last month Nike unveiled the #COUNTONKOBEiD contest: the winner’s design of the Nike Kobe 8 System iD shoe would be worn by Kobe Bryant in an upcoming Lakers home game.

On Monday, Kobe announced the winning design on his twitter account, crowning a submission from user @7thChamberpt2.  The shoes, which can be seen above, were required to have a home inspired colorway.  Not only does the winner get to see Kobe rock his designed shoes, but he will get his own pair of Kobe 8 System iDs ($180 retail value).

Now Bryant can point a finger at his shoes and the designer if the game doesn’t go his way.
