With Kobe out another six weeks due to injury, we can’t help but notice that his current endorser in Nike and their Prelude homage to number 24 is honoring the guard as if he’s already retired. Today we get a look at a shoe that acts as a reminder to the NBA’s tribute to the fallen victims on September 11th that had every team wearing an American Flag patch on their jerseys for the 2001-2002 season. adidas and Kobe stepped up with an even larger tribute with the Lakers star rocking the Audi-inspired adidas Kobe 2 in an all Americana iteration during the All-Star game festivities in Philadelphia. LeBron could also be seen wearing this exclusive pair during his Junior year at St. Vincent St. Mary’s (the team was officially sponsored by the three stripes). With adidas re-launching his first silhouette under the new adidas Crazy 1 imprint, could we be seeing this exact model in retro form soon? Hit the click for a better look and let us know if you remember these classics.

^ Jesus wept, Sneaker News! Do you make this stuff up as you go along?

Kobe did NOT wear this model at the ASG. It was designed for the opening game of the season (first game after 9/11) when the Lakers played the Blazers: http://www.kicksologists.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/Kobe_251.jpg

He wore the white/yellow colourway for the Philly ASG.

And it was the KOBE ONE inspired by the Audi, NOT the Kobe 2.


Know your sneaker history.

Jus hated these shoes. And so did Kobe. Hence why he left Adidas... They were comfortable but they didn't have any responsiveness or real grip when u cut quickly... But knowin adidas they will bring these back too

@JasonRepson @Da_Real_Big_Infinite Nope. He left adidas. The rape case actually happened the summer that he officially signed with Nike. Kobe actually bought himself out of the adidas contract. hence, why he had to wear different brands every couple of games. Part of the deal was that he couldn't wear the same brand for more than two games.
