PHOTO: Skylar Diggins wears Kobe 9 shoes to Tulsa Shock media day

Earlier this year, WNBA star Skylar Diggins reminded us all that she’s a big Kobe Bryant fan, so it’s not all that shocking to discover that the 23-year-old wears the Black Mamba’s kicks on a regular basis.

And, today, Diggins wore a fresh pair of Nike Kobe 9 low top shoes to the Tulsa Shocks’ media day.

I don’t recognize this colorway, so it could be custom or something that’s in the pipeline and hasn’t been released to the general public just yet, though it appears to be an almost inverse colorway to the Nike “Bruce Lee” Kobe 9 EM low shoes that were released earlier in the year.

Diggins has had a strong start to the preseason and is currently averaging 27.5 points, 5.5 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game.

What do you think?
