With Kobe Bryant having called time on his legendary career, basketball historians and fans have been poring over their fondest Mamba memories. Why should it be any different with shoes?
The Kobe XI ‘3-D’ is a tribute to one of the most distinctive of Kobe’s signature shoes, the ‘Hollywood’ colorway of the Kobe VI. The ‘Hollywood’ debuted at the 2011 NBA All-Star Game, which was, incidentally, hosted at Bryant and the Lakers’ home arena, the Staples Center. Kobe, selected as a starter, turned in an MVP performance while wearing the stereoscopic three dimensional effect shades of red and cyan on his feet.
Even in a career filled with championships, gold medals, and individual honors, an MVP All-Star performance in your home arena isn’t something that happens every day. Commemorating this moment at the end of Kobe’s career makes an excellent reason for bringing back this unique design to the most recent Kobe model.
