recently stuffed another feather in the bonnet of his illustrious career with the official retirement of not one, but two numbers. The player-honouring gesture prevents any future team members from wearing said digital distinction. With both 8 and 24 jerseys set out to pasture, Kobe is the only player with two numbers retired by the same team.

To mark this momentous occasion, are offering a special edition iD made from ‘Black Mamba’ snakeskin embossed leather. On top of the serpentine design there’s a hefty yellow Swoosh with a chunky 3D extrusion and heel counters sporting numbers 8 and 24. To finish off the symbolic design, the tongue sports 8 stars, a reference to the Laker’s total title tally.

The NIKEiD Air Force 1 ‘Black Mamba’ will be available from 7:30pm PT online from Nike.
