The Nike Kobe 5 Prelude debuted on January 4th, 2014 and retailed for $200 USD. It was part of the Nike Kobe Prelude Collection that celebrated stories behind some of Kobe Bryant’s most defining moments.
Bringing vibrant pop art to life, the Nike Kobe 5 celebrates Kobe Bryant’s status in popular culture. Bold color accentuates the Nike Flywire, a technology that was just one year old at the time the Kobe 5 debuted.
A Gold-filled Swoosh pays tribute to Bryant’s championship captured in this shoe, while a glow-in-the-dark outsole pulls everything together.
