Kobe Prelude VII

Nike unveils the latest from the Kobe Prelude Pack this week, based on the Nike Kobe VII System.

Originally launched in 2011, the sneaker maximized performance innovation with a customizable approach, giving athletes support and cushioning options.

The Kobe Prelude VII plays on cubist art and Bryant’s 2012 gold victory in London, sporting graphics portrayed in a cubist style, as well as a dynamic composition that features the mamba, Bryant’s No. 10 worn in London, and additional storytelling elements to form a mural look. On the heel, there is a laurel wreath around the number 10, again in a cubist styling.

The Kobe Prelude Pack features all eight of Bryant’s signature shoes and celebrates the stories behind some of his most defining moments. Eight revolutionary art movements have been paired with eight milestones in Bryant’s career to recreate each of his signature shoes.

Each shoe will be available in limited quantities on Nike.com (North America, Greater China and Western Europe) and at select retailers in North America and Greater China. The Kobe Prelude VII will be available on Saturday (Jan. 18).
