It was the night before the Lakers were set to open their season against the Utah Jazz, and I was feeling good about my new meter box.
I had just gotten home from an incredible workout that included running, yoga, and a lot of stretching.
I was going to do some heavy lifting, and this was a great way to warm up for the game.
When the Lakers opened their preseason slate on Wednesday, I figured it was going be my last opportunity to wear a new meter.
But the night I was in my locker room, I heard a familiar voice behind me.
“I’m here to see you,” it said.
My eyes widened as I realized this was Kobe Bryant.
Bryant was in the room, as was Bryant’s wife Kim Kardashian.
Kanye was wearing a purple Nike Zoom Air 2, his signature shoe, and he looked amazing.
He was also wearing a red Nike Air Max 1.
The two looked pretty similar, but I knew it was the other shoe.
It was like a combination of a Kobe Bryant jersey and a Nike Zoom Zoom Air, complete with the famous purple and red stripes.
In the next few minutes, we all noticed that Kanye looked a lot like the NBA superstar.
Before we knew it, I was wearing my new Nike Zoom Zebra 3 Meter Box, which was just as awesome as it sounded.
For most of the night, I wore it in a casual, casual style, but when it was time to hit the court, I took it off.
There was no need to worry about it breaking, as the shoe is waterproof and can be worn on the court.
This was definitely one of the coolest shoes I’ve ever worn, especially since I could feel my feet under the shoe as I ran.
I never thought I’d be able to run without the shoes, but it definitely made me feel more athletic.
Even though I didn’t have any extra equipment, I had my workout partner try to get in my shoes and run with me.
I was definitely impressed with how much of a difference wearing the shoes made.
As a Lakers fan, it was tough not to be in awe of Kobe.
He was such a special player, and to see him wear a shoe that is so similar to his signature Nike Zoom, was something I can’t get enough of.
I wore the shoes for the first time at a Lakers game last year, and it was really cool to wear them again.
I loved that the shoe felt so much like Kobe Bryant’s signature, but this time I had it made for me.
The Lakers will open their preseason against the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night.
