Player exclusive sneakers are improving in quality and increasing in number, but even still, to consider that among the best PEs of any model this season, the fact that this one is made for high school ballers is kinda crazy. Kobe Bryant has been blessing Harlem’s Rice High School with Zoom Kobe PEs for years now and after last Friday’s game against the Knicks at MSG, the Black Mamba was on hand at Foot Locker for an early release of the Nike Zoom Kobe VI Rice PE. These joints aren’t just a TB look to match the team’s uniforms, but rather an immediate contender for best ZK6 with their skillful blend of black, gold and green. Best high school basketball sneaker ever? That too seems possible, and you can get a better look for yourself courtesy of taobao by clicking on the jump below. If you like what you see, expect a wider release of the Rice Zoom Kobe 6 on Saturday, March 5th, or pick up a pair early now on eBay.
