For the younger demographic of the Black Mamba faithful – did you know that the Nike Zoom Huarache 2k4 was supposed to be his first signature shoe? Timing’s everything and for Nike to put out a sig shoe bearing Kobe’s name wasn’t exactly the best move at the time, but Kobe still rocked the super-comfy Zoom Huarache 2k4 with pride. It wasn’t until 2006 that we would see the first official Nike Kobe shoe, but Kobe historians often point to the H2K4 (considered to be one of the greatest Nike basketball products of all-time) as the official start to the Kobe legacy. Sneaker News brought good fortune to our readers when we reported the news of the re-release of the Zoom Huarache 2k4, and here we have a detailed look at a Black/Varsity Maize colorway that Kobe could definitely rock right now – although the superstitious would rather Kobe not change up his routine because he’s going nuts on the court right now. Check out the detailed angles below and let us know what you think of the colorway, and let us know if you’d like to see Kobe rock the Huarache 2k4 this season! via MarqueeSole.

Man forget Kobe, I'M trynna rock these this season!!! Nike needs to hurry and bring these out, minus boosted price of Nike ID....!
Yessssssss........i remember these coming out when I was in the 6th grade and not being able to afford a pair smh......im gettin them when they release
These shoes are awesome and this colorway takes it over the top. I wouldn't care if he shot 6-30 playing in these. I'd be in awe just looking at how sweet these would look with the Laker uniforms. Heck, if he just walked around to shootaround with these on his feet that will seal it for me. Wow! So nice!
