Nike is going big on the Kobe 9, and will drop retro releases of every one of the Black Mamba's signature Swoosh models once a week leading up to the release of the 9. We start, of course, with the Kobe 1. The design takes inspiration from surrealism art and Kobe's legendary 81 point game against the Toronto Raptors in 2006 wearing his first Nike signature. If ever there has been an endorsement for a sneaker, it's that performance, and it's honoured with a special badge on the sockliner. The Kobe Prelude Pack will be available in limited quantities on Nike.com (North America, Greater China and Western Europe) and at select retailers in North America and Greater China starting with this number on December 7.
