Ever since Kobe Bryant penned a contract with Nike in 2003 to begin a line of signature shoes, the flood of provocative, technically innovative, and performance-driven shoes have pretty much not missed a beat. Releasing every year since 2006, the Kobe line has seen an evolution as dramatic as his game, full of creative storytelling and color. To help celebrate the impending launch of his 9th model, Nike has prepared the Kobe Prelude Pack, featuring all eight of Bryant’s signature shoes engineered for performance and designed to celebrate his career with art movements. Each shoe is infused with performance design mixed with art, telling a story of what’s to come in the Kobe 9 Elite silhouette, which is scheduled for a February 8, 2014 release. Each of the eight models making up the Prelude Pack will release weekly beginning with the Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Prelude on Saturday December 7. Stay tuned for weekly looks at each shoe as Nike reveals the inside story of each model and the accomplishment it represents.
