Kobe Bryant to release new Lower Merion sneaker

    How jealous are the rivals of Lower Merion High School’s basketball team?

    It’s time for NBA star and LMHS alum Kobe Bryant to release a new show with the school’s colors, and the players each get two new pairs while the district gets a cut of the sales.

    Ardmore Patch tells us the new sneaker is called “Nike Zoom Kobe VI,” though it’s also known as the Lower Merion. Here’s a photo. The sneaker will be available to the public, but only the LMHS basketball players will get freebies.
