10. Nike Zoom Kobe 4 “MLK” Martin Luther King


Year: 2009

Beauty and performance all-in-one, all-time worthy.

Possibly one of the best, if not THE GOAT of the whole signature line.  Serious Kobe enthusiasts regard this sneaker as their favorite Kobe shoe ever. Mostly because of the perfect color selection from Nike Basketball, color blocking and placement of each hue.  It embodies the Lakers spirit and embodies Kobe himself with low-key snakeskin features throughout the upper.  If you stood with your feet together, you could even see a purple heart on the toe box seen below.

The day was January 19th, 2009 in which Bryant led the Los Angeles Lakers to a 105-88 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers.  Not only was the sneakers beautiful on court, but he also did some damage against the self-proclaimed King, LeBron James. Kobe with 22 points, 6 rebounds, and a whopping 12 assists while shooting 9-22.  Not a bad performance to land the number 10 spot right?
