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.

Nike Zoom Kobe V ‘Throw It Down, Shannon Brown’ PE – Sample on eBay

nike zoom kobe v shannon brown ebay 11 Nike Zoom Kobe V Throw It Down, Shannon Brown PE   Sample on eBay

The best part about Shannon Brown’s slam-dunk contest appearance during last year’s All-Star Weekend in Dallas? The shoes he never wore. While Brown’s dunks were shockingly ordinary (he was regarded as a one of the front-runners to stymie a Nate Robinson three-peat), his shoes, pics of the unworn Nike Zoom Kobe V ‘Throw It Down, Shannon Brown’ PE quickly caught our eyes with the unique colorway of white, grey, blue, green and orange. While the significance or inspiration behind the wayward colorway hasn’t been determined, the mysterious shoe is a collector’s gem and near the top of the Most Wanted Nike Kobes around. Here’s a new set of images of the Shannon Brown PE, and if you’re a size 8, grab this rare pair from jackpotvintage on eBay.
