With Kobe out another six weeks due to injury, we can’t help but notice that his current endorser in Nike and their Prelude homage to number 24 is honoring the guard as if he’s already retired. Today we get a look at a shoe that acts as a reminder to the NBA’s tribute to the fallen victims on September 11th that had every team wearing an American Flag patch on their jerseys for the 2001-2002 season. adidas and Kobe stepped up with an even larger tribute with the Lakers star rocking the Audi-inspired adidas Kobe 2 in an all Americana iteration during the All-Star game festivities in Philadelphia. LeBron could also be seen wearing this exclusive pair during his Junior year at St. Vincent St. Mary’s (the team was officially sponsored by the three stripes). With adidas re-launching his first silhouette under the new adidas Crazy 1 imprint, could we be seeing this exact model in retro form soon?
