Not all unions are perfect. This is not just the case with human relations but brand partnerships as well. Don’t believe us? Just have a look at what resulted when two of the world’s most renowned names decided to unite. We are talking about Aston Martin and Nike. The result of their union is the disappointing Nike Hyperdunk Kobe Bryant Aston Martin Edition sneaker. A luxurious shoe that will fit only the affluent feet, it retails for $550 a pair. Despite featuring premium leathers and the Aston Martin logo on the tongue, this shoe fails to appeal to my taste buds. A treat for every Kobe Bryant fan, it is even embossed with Kobe’s signature on the inside. A limited-edition of just 500 pieces, this shoe is a must-have for every Kobe fan.
The shoes are expected to hit stores by late spring but you can pre-order them for $700 here.
