No player emulated Michael Jordan quite like Kobe Bryant. From his aging game’s reliance on crafty turnaround jumpers to his competitive drive, there’s a reason that Mike said that Kobe’s the only player he could see beating him in a game of one-on-one, “because he stole all of (his) moves”. Now Jordan Brand is paying homage to the MJ protégé with this Air Jordan Kobe Pack consisting of a Lakers-themed Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 8. The duo each features a black “Away” base while accents of purple and gold hit in the patterns native to each silhouette, from the 3’s cement elephant print to the wavy-early 90s style of the heel and outsole. Still no word yet on the nature of this duo’s availability and when they will hit retailers, but check out a brief glimpse below.
