Kobe Bryant just made a triumphant return tonight against the Toronto Raptors wearing the first-ever Retro model of the Kobe signature line. That would be the Nike Zoom Kobe 1 from the Kobe Prelude Pack, which boasts a special colorway that pays tribute to Bryant’s 81-point game. Coincidentally, the team he scored 81 on is the same team he faced off against tonight, but Kobe fell far short of matching that amazing number. Regardless of scoring output, Kobe’s return is a testament to how devoted he is to the game and his training, and we should expect only the highest level of tenacity throughout the rest of the campaign. Check out Kobe in the Prelude 1s below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates as we near the on-court debut of the Kobe 9 later in February 2014.
