Deceptively simple, the Nike Zoom Kobe VII Prelude tells a comprehensive story ringed in gold. The dominant black and grey tones reference the city of London, home to the 2012 Summer Olympics, where Kobe and the USA Basketball team were the ultimate victors. The fine art theme that runs throughout the Nike Kobe Prelude Pack continues here on the shoe’s upper, adorned with a cubist art form originally birthed in Spain — the country that squared off against the United States in the Gold Medal game. Naturally, gold accents enhance the shoe’s design, highlighted by a wreath design surrounding Kobe’s uniform number during the games. The kicks are set to launch January 18th.
