Nike Kobe 7 Prelude – Release Reminder
The last of retros from the Kobe Prelude Pack will be this Nike Kobe VII pair that will be in stores tomorrow. Of course “in stores” is a relative term here as you’ve gotta do a little bit of legwork to get your hands on a pair, be it via a raffle ticket or a Twitter RSVP spot. After that the Kobe rotation will return to the Kobe 8 for a brief moment before things switch over to the Kobe 9. Continue reading for more images on the pair and then see if there’s anything available for you now on eBay.
Nike Zoom Kobe 7 Prelude

Style Code: 639692-001
Release Date: 01/18/14
Wonder if these weren't so limited would they be an easy copp. Re-sell value and hype really makes shoes more popular than what they are because I havent seen 1 prelude on anyones feet.
only one out of the pack i want but definitely think these should have been a limited release back when the kobe 7s were released but without the gold 10 on back and insole of course
OH I'm getting these…..Oh wait I can't because Nikestore will sell out in 00.3 Seconds. House hoops won't call my tickets, and $600.00 resell value is not what I can do right now. Thanks Nike!
@SneakerDoeI could just copy and paste except replace, "House of Hoops won't call my tickets" with "House of Hoops or any other store getting them doesn't exist for hundreds of miles". The only solace I get from that is that if my town got them they wouldn't call me either as I haven't won a raffle in well over a year. Quite honestly when they were talking about just retroing the 2s I thought they'd be like $150 and not that hard to get. Reactions were lukewarm. Then they brought out the entire pack and said it's going to be super limited and BOOM hype machine. I went from trying to figure out how to budget 8 extra pairs in 2 months to not having to worry about getting a pair.
I try every weekend on Nike.com and the BEST I've done is get in line and wait until they sold out completely. Most of the time I get in line and i get an error that kicks me out after a few minutes and I can't add them again. Other times it literally just gives you the out of stock message the second they become available. I really hope somebody out there is figuring out how to make sneaker bots completely screw up Nike.com and cost them money and time with a malfunctioning website or a virus etc so Nike.com will actually do something about them. If you look at it as it is they still sell every pair and nothing changes for them. Sure, we're all mad that we all of a sudden can't buy anything but we still come back when it's our only shot at the shoe. So it's not their problem. Sneaker bots need to become a Nike.com problem or we're screwed forever. Let's go hackers!
