We all knew it would only be a matter of time before the 61 Points edition of the Zoom Kobe IV would find their way either to retail stores, or at the very least, eBay. Well, the bad news is that there are no plans at the moment to release these to the public, but the good news is that the first pair to pop up is actually a game-worn pair that Kobe rocked on court during Game 1 of this year’s NBA Finals. It seems that the kicks were given to Lakers guard, Jordan Farmar, who then gave them to his brother Mike, who then sold them to this eBay seller. It seems that the story is legit and the kicks have not been cleaned in anyway, leaving them in the battle-worn condition they were in after they came off Kobe’s feet at the end of the Lakers’ Game 1 Finals win over Orlando. Sports collector’s items don’t get much better than this, so if you are a Kobe fan, you might want to consider breaking the bank for a shot at owning his game-worn size 13.5’s. Get over to eBay now and place your bid on a one of a kind piece of Kobe/Nike/NBA history.
