The cake walk towards the Nike Kobe 9 release continues, we've seen Prelude editions of the 1 and 2 and you know what that means... it's time for number 3. The Kobe 3 was the last high-top in the Kobe line before the 9, and all of its big pock-mark webbing is utilised in this rendition. The Kobe 1 and 2 in the Prelude pack took inspiration from a couple of Kobe's grand, world-beating achievements, but this one focuses on more sullen times. This colourway is said to encapsulate the misery of the Lakers loss to Boston in Game 6 of the 2008 Finals. Peruse pics of the piece above, and cop it this Saturday, December 21 from ,Nike.com and select retailers in North America and Greater China.
