nike kobe iii tile posite 9 Nike Zoom Kobe III Tile Posite Sample

From the weird world of unreleased Nike samples, we bring you the “Tile Posite” sample of the Nike Zoom Kobe III. Clearly the upper is made of some sort of composite material that Nike dubbed “Tile Posite”, which is built via a seamless one-piece upper and some eccentric cut-outs around the foot for ventilation and/or aesthetics. The released version of the Nike Zoom Kobe III (if you young’ns can even remember) wasn’t much more subdued in comparison, using a funky “tiled” cutout of squares stretched out to fit over the foot, so perhaps this sample we’re seeing here is before the actual “Tile Posite” was even applied. In any case,we’ve got a gallery for you peer at below, so take a look and let us know if you have any Kobe IIIs in your collection.

Kobe Bryant Autographed Sneaker Showcase

kobe bryant autograph set 1 Kobe Bryant Autographed Sneaker Showcase

Throughout the history of the NBA, no other ‘sneaker history’ is as eventful and engrossing as that of Kobe Bryant. Sure, MJ had the Air Jordan line and LeBron James is currently etching out his own legacy, but Kobe Bryant’s timeline of kicks goes up and down, left and right, covering two signature lines with two brands and a jaw-dropping load of Player Exclusives. Starting with his iconoclastic adidas The Kobe signature line, his stint rocking Nike Basketball and Air Jordan PEs, the relatively unknown period during which Kobe rocked Reebok PEs (yes, the Answer IV and the Question), and stopping at his current Nike Kobe 8 model, there’s a lot to talk about. This sick showcase of Kobe Bryant’s kicks covers a good portion of what’s been laid out, and what’s more impressive is that these shoes are not only game-worn, but also autographed. Flip through below and let us know which of the shoes featured below gets you excited the most!

Nike Zoom Kobe Historical Comparison

In 2003, Kobe Bryant was officially added to the exclusive bunch of Nike signature athletes, joining the likes of Michael Jordan, Anfernee Hardaway, Charles Barkley, and more. The addition of Kobe, alongside the new acquisition of prep-to-pro prospect LeBron James, would mark a brand new era of Nike Basketball, one that has fortified Nike’s role as the pinnacle of performance basketball outfitting. It was in 2006 when a Nike shoe would officially bear Kobe Bryant’s name, but it was originally the Nike Zoom Huarache 2k4 that was set to be the starting point to a long-lasting partnership; following the Zoom Huarache 2k4 was the 2k5 version, which paved the way for Kobe’s official introduction as a Nike signature athlete in 2006 with the release of the Air Zoom Kobe 1.

Since that ’06 debut, we’ve seen Nike accomplish hat it had set out to do when it first brought on the Lakers superstar; six more installments as well as the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk (another ‘unofficial’ Kobe shoe), with the game-changing Kobe System setting new precedents in basketball footwear and design. So by our count, it’s ten shoes for Kobe thus far, and there’s no end in sight just yet. It’s not often we get to see all ten shoes bunched together, but thanks to wmsky of Kenlu, we’re given a nice side-by-side comparison of the Kobe V, VI, and VII as well as a unique look at original vs. current Kobe model. Check out some of the nice visuals after the jump and let us know which Nike Kobe shoe is your favorite of all-time.
