Did Kobe Just Tease a Line of Retro Sneakers?
Does Kobe’s latest Instagram story tease an upcoming line of retro sneakers? We think so.
The story features a contemplative Bryant holding a pair of Zoom Kobe 1s, his first Nike signature. While this is enough to fuel rumours, he stirs the pot with this caption: ‘We’re always looking to build on things that we’ve done in the past to try to improve them.’
Many have pointed out that with Mamba Day approaching on April 13 the timing would work. We’ve got great Kobe retros in the past — notably the ‘Fade to Black’ pack — but this could be a sign that old school Mamba models will become in-store staples. Here's hoping.
