The first of eight in the Kobe Bryant Prelude Pack, the Nike Zoom Kobe I Prelude Pack drops today. Commemorating Kobe’s greatest game in these shoes, the insoles of the Kobe 1 reads:
I. 81pts. MMVI.
This re-release of Bryant’s first Nike signature shoe honors Kobe’s 81 point performance mixed with an art motif inspired by surrealism. A black mamba inspired upper features a snakeskin look with art on the collar and Swoosh revealing the inside of a snake. A special badge is featured on the sockliner with “81,” paying homage to the Black Mamba’s highest point total in a single game.
In typical Mamba fashion, Kobe made his return in the Kobe I Preludes as you can see in the picture below.
