Kobe Bryant Shoes

Kobe Bryant shoes

Watching the NBA finals yesterday gives me the idea of making this “Behind the scenes” Kobe Bryant shoes post. Basketball shoes has been a selling icon since the first Michael Jordan Shoes. The “Air Jordan 1”. After the MJ signature shoes, basketball shoes has become an excellent way for companies such as: Nike, Adidas, Converse to boost their sales. Lets check the Kobe Bryant Shoe History.

Kobe Shoes

Kobe Shoes

Adidas

-2001-

The smooth, sleek style of the men’s Kobe two basketball shoes from Adidas® is expressed through an innovative midsole, molded pearlized skin with a brushed-metal look
and a hood-covered lacing system. The full-rubber outsole features a herringbone pattern for maximum traction on the court.
An integrated 3D Torsion® system helps deliver midfoot stability and support,
while an internal bootie is built-in for optimum comfort and support.

* Despite these Adidas Kobe Bryant shoes are not manufactured anymore, you can still buy them at ebay.com

Nike 2K5 & 2K4

-2005-

Perhaps the Huarache is one of the best basketball shoes Nike has ever made. It has tremendous durability in long hours of play and comfort is consistent.
Players do not have to worry about the weight for the Huarache provides maximum stability even if it is very light to wear.
Finally, centers, forwards and guards will highly appreciate this kind of shoe. Aside from its performance, the Huarache also has distinctive styles and color ways to match the owners.

Nike Zoom Kobe I

-2006-

The ZK1’s most striking feature is the carbon fiber spring plate on the outside of the midsole, which extends from the midfoot around the heel
all the way to the midfoot on the medial side, this feature contributes to the unmatched stability the total package provides.

Another innovative feature of the ZK1 is its ankle collar design; the ZK1’s Dynamic Ankle Collar extends to the back of the heel and joins with the shoe’s sphere inner booty.
Inside the shoe, the where the ankle sits is a round piece of leather on both sides of the bone, which provides great comfort but sacrifices great fit.

* These shoes are available in ebay.com and other online stores.

Nike Zoom Kobe II

-2007-

Relentless innovation for a signature shoe, The Nike Zoom Kobe II provides the ultimate performance experience.
It’s not just another basketball shoe, it’s a line called “Weapons of War” and conformed by 3 basketball shoes: the Zoom Kobe Sheath, Strength, and Lite.
Kobe worked with the design team at Nike to ensure that his Zoom Kobe II, a product that demanded 18 months of design process, would cover his expectations:
a creative signature shoe to could also provide speed, strength, increased flexibility, traction, and support.

Nike Zoom Kobe III

-2008-

On February 2008 Kobe’s third shoes hit the streets. The pictures available show 3 color sets for the 2007-2008 NBA Season: black, grey and maize; grey, white and sky blue; and the All-Star edition with red and gold.
The new edition of Kobe Bryant signature shoes, the Nike Zoom Kobe III (3) feature:
• Stability: Carbon fiber plate provides the ultimate balance between stability and support, energy response and flexibility.
• Cushioning: Full-length Zoom Air unit in the midsole delivers protection, extreme responsiveness and quick motion on the court.
• Support: Injected cafte urethane on the upper forms the net shape for added support and adjustment on the foot.

Last and but definitely not least
Kobe Bryan Hyperdunks

Nike launched the Hyperdunk shoes, its “lightest and strongest basketball shoe ever”. Kobe and other olympic players like Manu Ginobili, Yi Jian Lian and Dirk Nowitzki will wear them in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

The shoes, to be released in July will feature colorways and characters to represent each player.
Although there have been several presentations, and events to introduce the Hyperdunks, there’s no doubt that the most “eye-catching” was the internet release of a video,
featuring Kobe jumping over an Aston Martin, wearing of course the Hyperdunks.
