Kobe Bryant’s illustrious career will come to an end at the end of the current NBA season. Once the Black Mamba hangs it up for good, it will be interesting to see what Nike’s plans are for the newly retired signature athlete. Does the Kobe signature line warrant a continuation, or will the Kobe 11 be the final stop on this long and storied road? It’s likely that we’ll see more post-career sneakers come out, and this upcoming Zoom Kobe Icon sneaker, which is set to release on January 15th, is a hint at what may come. Featuring the sole of the Zoom Kobe 6 and an upper that draws comparisons to the Zoom Flight Glove, the Kobe Icon blends pinnacle design features of the past with some lifestyle-friendly uppers. It’s clear that the Zoom Kobe Icon is meant to be an off-the-court shoe, so what else does Nike have in store? Check out the photos below.
