nike kobe prelude exhibit A Detailed Look at the Nike Kobe Prelude Exhibit

In 2003, Kobe Bryant – a free agent in the sneaker endorsement market – signed a deal with athletic giant Nike. The first signature model would not be unveiled until 2006 when the Air Zoom Kobe 1 would hit shelves. Since then, Nike Basketball has come forward with new designs year after year – eight in total as of this date – with the entire line at the hands of Eric Avar. As we all know, the progression of the signature shoe can be seen as a natural evolution, with certain elements carrying over from one phase to another, and with a career so illustrious like that of Kobe’s, each model has its fair share of stories to tell.

There you have it, the whole set of Nike Kobe “Prelude” retros. As mentioned before, the sneakers are each wrapped up in specific moments from Kobe Bryant’s career.

After the break there are photos showing off the details from each of the shoes, so check those out and pray with us that the distribution on this exciting Nike Kobe “Prelude” retro set isn’t too terribly limited.

Update: Each Kobe Prelude Pack shoe will release on Nike.com as well as select additional retailers. There will be one release per week beginning with the Nike Zoom Kobe I Prelude on December 7th.

Some more interesting customs to show you – a rarely used Nike Zoom Kobe VI done “Yeezy” style.

Going back to this custom – Sal Freshsole takes the delicate Kobe VI upper and blacks it out while adding a punchy pink lining and glow-in-the-dark detailing on the outsole.

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!

Classics Revisited: Nike Zoom Kobe VI “Grinch” (2010)

December 17th, 2012 by | 6 comments

grinch kobe sneakers Classics Revisited: Nike Zoom Kobe VI Grinch (2010)

CHRISTMAS-INSPIRED SNEAKERS WEEK

With the Christmas Holiday arriving next Tuesday, Sneaker News is taking a look back at the five most memorable Christmas-inspired sneakers of all-time for this latest week-long segment of Classics Revisited. Starting things off is what may be the best Christmas release ever (and certainly the most popular Nike Kobe release of all-time) – the Nike Zoom Kobe VI ‘Grinch’. This incredibly bright Volt colorway was debuted by Kobe on Christmas Day in 2010 in a highly-anticipated match-up between Kobe Bryant and the new-look Miami Heat. The Grinch effect was a team-wide affair, with the bright green taking form in Player Exclusive form in other Nike models. In addition, the courtside viewers received a special gift bag that included the bright-green Kobes as well.

The nickname of ‘The Grinch’ originated among the sneaker blogs/forums for its resemblance to the infamous Dr. Seuss character who tried to ruin the holiday. However, Nike has officially dubbed these the ‘Green Mamba’ as the colorway is taken directly from the animal of the same name. The green mamba has the same two-toned green scales with the sharp black eyes, while the touch of red was added by Nike to tie in the Christmas theme. Despite the official ‘Green Mamba’ inspiration, these are universally referred to as the Grinch – even by Nike’s in-house designers themselves. Is the Kobe VI ‘Grinch’ the best Christmas-inspired release of all-time, or is that shoe yet to be seen in this week’s Classics Revisited?
