Nike Zoom Kobe 3 Prelude – Official Images

December 17th, 2013 by / 11

This weekend will bring us the third model from the Nike Kobe Prelude Pack of Kobe Bryant retros. The sneakers take a turn and actually speak to a low moment for Kobe rather than a shining achievement-that moment being the misery he felt after losing to the Boston Celtics in the 2008 NBA Finals. The representation of those feelings comes via the frantic, abstract graphics that are slid in beneath the upper’s cage. Continue reading for more on this upcoming Nike Kobe 3 Prelude pair and tell us in the comments if you’ve grab anything from the pack just yet.

With an innovative, web-like upper, the Kobe Prelude III is built for premium performance. The fresco-inspired artistry sets it apart, with a story of ‘misery’ coming to life – a nod to the misery of defeat Kobe Bryant felt in a game 6 loss to Boston in the 2008 finals.
