Kobe Bryant

Is it too early for Nike to begin giving past Kobe models the retro treatment? Kobe Bryant doesn’t seem to think so. The Black Mamba took to his IG stories to share the image you see above. The image shows Kobe holding what appears to be the Nike Kobe 1 accompanied by a caption that read “We’re always looking to build on things that we’ve done in the past to try to improve them”

Though not yet “official”, this pretty much confirms that Kobe retros are on the horizon and they could be releasing in a manner that makes them better than the firs they dropped. New tech? New materials? Improved colorways? Who know, we’ll have to wait and see.

No release info has been disclosed yet, but don’t be surprised if something happens on ar around Mamba Day (April 13th). Stay tuned.

During the 2002-2003 NBA season Kobe Bryant was a sneaker free agent and many consider this to be his greatest “sneaker” season of all-time. The main reason is because he wore some of the best Air Jordan retros of all-time, including some of his very own PE colorways. One of the most popular is the white, purple, and yellow Air Jordan 3 which was given to friends & family of the brand last year in a special pack alongside Kobe’s Air Jordan 8 covered in the same colors.

This special Air Jordan 3 that was specifically designed for the Mamba back in 2002-2003 was recently auctioned off on eBay and sold for a whopping $30,400. The shoe comes in Kobe’s size 14 and also includes the production date of 11/26/2002 written on the tongue tag. Would you have payed that much money for a piece of Kobe/Air Jordan history? Check out detailed images of the exact pair that was sold below.
