While we already got detailed looks at the Kobe Prelude I, the Kobe Prelude II and the III, today Nike gave us our first extended look at the upcoming Kobe Prelude IV. Long regarded as perhaps the best of Kobe Bryant‘s signature line, the IV was a low-cut sneaker that was ahead of its time, and this version showcases a purple and gold motif to celebrate Kobe’s 2009 title, his first without Shaq.
The Prelude Pack features all eight of Bryant’s signature shoes, bringing together his iconic moments with detailed art movements to create some truly unique colorways. The Kobe Prelude IV will be available this Saturday in limited quantities on Nike.com (North America, Greater China and Western Europe) and at select retailers in North America and Greater China. Until then, check out the images below and a behind-the-scenes look at one of Kobe’s most memorable shoes ever.
