One of the three athletes honored by Nike for Black History Month 2011 is Kobe Bryant, who was recognized for his greatness as displayed by his astounding 81-point performance against the Toronto Raptors in 2006. Of course, since that game, Kobe has accomplished a lot more than an 81-point performance, like back-to-back NBA championships in 2009 and 2010 as well as an Olympic Gold Medal in 2008. Arriving at select Nike retailers tomorrow is the Nike Zoom Kobe VI ‘Black History Month’, which features the gorgeous Black/Gold themed colorway and the ‘BHM’ logo on the heel, with special insoles commemorating the month-long tradition. 21 Mercer will have these available tomorrow so be sure to cop these if you can because you can also find them on eBay.
Color: Black/Metallic Gold
