With the NBA All-Star Weekend taking place in Los Angeles this year, you know Nike had to do something special to honor their favorite LA All-Star, Kobe Bryant. We already brought you a look at the new “Black Mamba” trailer and some pics from the Q&A with Kobe and Robert Rodriguez, but there was plenty more to reveal from yesterday’s event. Aside from his All-Star shoe and the three LA-inspired Zoom Kobe VI’s that will be releasing, there will also be two Kobe Air Force 1 models hitting retail in February as well. We’ve already shown you a few looks at both the Eggplant Air Force 1 High Foamposite and the Air Force 1 Vac Tech, both featuring Laker-esque color schemes and Kobe’s Shozoku logo on the tongues, but now we get to see some new images in all their glory at home inside the Nike Vault at Staples Center.
In addition to the two Kobe-inspired Air Force 1’s, we also got a look at the latest in Kobe apparel, including an appearance by members of the Nike Kobe apparel team to break down some of the latest products inspired by the Black Mamba. Keep reading for a detailed look at the two Kobe Air Force 1’s that will be hitting retailers in the coming weeks, as well as some sneak peeks at the latest in Kobe gear.
