The “Masterpiece Collection” of the Nike Kobe Signature Series

nike kobe masterpiece collection The Masterpiece Collection of the Nike Kobe Signature Series

Beginning in early December 2013, Nike Basketball opened the book to the Kobe Prelude Pack – an eight-part series that featured every Nike Kobe signature sneaker accentuated by gripping colorways inspired by a specific era of art. Each release was appointed a specific title that connected with a storyline that unfolded during the shoe’s original lifetime – the Kobe III and “Misery”, the Kobe V and “Finals MVP”, and so forth. Most, if not all, of the Kobe sneakers of the past already have their own specific label, and as we gear up for the launch of the ninth signature shoe, we’ve compiled a select group of the best Nike Kobe signatures – one from each model – that we are calling the “Masterpiece Collection”.

The next eight pages depicts the highlight release of each of the eight models that proudly represented the Kobe Bryant’s label. Each selection is one that became available to retailers (no PEs or super-limited issues) and is regarded as a bright highlight of the model that has achieved that “classic” distinction, but one that represents the shoe as a whole. But why highlight shoes from the past? Considering Kobe’s current situation in the last stage of his career and the fact that Kobe Retros have gone down already, we may see these shoes make a comeback at retail. Continue on to see what we’ve selected as our own Kobe “Masterpiece Collection” and let us know if you have any in your Kobe collection.
