A Detailed Look at the Nike Kobe Prelude Exhibit

December 5th, 2013 by / 5

In 2003, Kobe Bryant – a free agent in the sneaker endorsement market – signed a deal with athletic giant Nike. The first signature model would not be unveiled until 2006 when the Air Zoom Kobe 1 would hit shelves. Since then, Nike Basketball has come forward with new designs year after year – eight in total as of this date – with the entire line at the hands of Eric Avar. As we all know, the progression of the signature shoe can be seen as a natural evolution, with certain elements carrying over from one phase to another, and with a career so illustrious like that of Kobe’s, each model has its fair share of stories to tell.

Acting as a precursor to the unveiling of the Kobe 9, Nike Basketball decided to retro the Nike Kobe signature line in an unprecedented manner; starting this Saturday, each and every signature model will release in a special edition colorway known as the Prelude, with one model owning each successive weekend date. The Nike Kobe Prelude Pack was on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art – each piece being suspended in mid-air above a platform with words that described each phase of the tranformation, We have a first-hand look at the Nike Kobe Prelude Exhibit from the Kobe 9 Media Launch Event just below, so take a look and stay tuned for the Prelude Pack release to kick off this Saturday with each version tagged with an MSRP of $200.

Anyone notice the last two pictures for the Kobe 8 Prelude are actually the Kobe 6 Prelude?  Great shoes though overall


Each of them tell a story, I love the theme


On the fifth and the sixth pctures are Kobe 8s and not the 6s. Correct it, Sneakernews! (page 7) and the same thing is on page 9 as well.
