In a tribute to the late NBA legend Kobe Bryant, Nike is set to reissue one of Kobe’s favorite shoes, the Lakers-themed Nike Air Force 1 Low, in the summer of 2024. This exciting release is part of the renewed partnership between Nike and the Kobe Bryant estate, managed by Vanessa Bryant, Kobe’s widow.
The partnership, rekindled in 2022, aims to make Kobe’s signature shoes more accessible to fans, including offering them in kids’ sizes. However, the collaboration goes beyond basketball shoes, extending into lifestyle-oriented footwear that reflects Kobe’s personal style and preferences.
The upcoming Kobe Bryant x Nike Air Force 1 Low edition is a testament to this commitment. The shoe features a color scheme of White, Varsity Maize, and Varsity Purple, reminiscent of the Lakers’ iconic colors. The design incorporates a complete leather build with perforations on the toe box and side panels for enhanced breathability. Varsity Maize overlays complement the White base, while Purple accents adorn the laces, Swooshes, mesh inner lining, and rubber outsole. Kobe’s iconic “24” number is prominently displayed on the tongue tags, and his logo is embroidered on the lateral side. A clean White AF1 midsole rounds off the design.
