Is there any better way for Kobe to return than against the team that he put up 81 against? Not only is the Mamba coming back this weekend, but he’s doing so on a week that saw Nike roll out previews of the new Nike Kobe 9 Elite as well as the epic Prelude Series that has special editions of every numbered Kobe signature. And while those will be releasing over the next few weeks, would you grab a special edition of an all white Kobe if they hit retailers? Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like that will be happening, but we do get a preview of the monochromatic silhouettes from a Nike event out in Hong Kong this past week, so hit the click for a preview and let us know which all-white treatment was your favorite in the comments.
at least they should drop some retro of the best kobe 1 to 8 cw , not limited or hyped as this prelude pack
love the kb2 in all white..i would cop no doubt..like better than the prelude cw..other than that i would pass on rest of this pack.
I feel you on the looks of the 6, they are stupid fresh! I never the 6's, how is the comfort? Are they more comfortable than the 8's? Because the 8's are super comfortable
Yes Bro, because its like a second skin. But most importantly, it provides the greatest tarsal support.
When you ball them, it keeps you planted on the floor even at pivot, lateral movements and at sudden explosion.
As far as design, IMHO the 6's are the simplest design in the entire line and yet every visible feature serves its purpose - not for pure aesthetics.
Lastly, the skin texture and relief by itself is the closest associated with the main endorser - a snakeskin....BLACK MAMBA!
Noticed Nike attempted departing from the snakeskin on the 7's only to revert back on the 8's. The 9's is a very huge gamble with a flyknit material. I'm just curious how much enhancements can they make out of this material and remain identified with Kobe - aside from the Shizoku symbol and his signature.
Now that Kobe is in his waning years, I can boldly say that the 6's will ultimately define Nike Kobe sneakers.
Excellent! Thanks.... I know that the shoe used zoom for cushioning was there anything else used? Was the 8 the first with lunarlon?
