Released in Nike’s Prelude Pack in January 2014, the Nike Zoom Kobe 5 “Prelude” celebrates Kobe Bryant’s impact on popular culture with a pop art-inspired colorway. 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. The multicolor upper features Flywire technology for a locked-down fit, while the gold Swoosh serves as a tribute to the championship ring Bryant won while wearing the Kobe 5. It also comes with purple speckling on the black midsole and a glow-in-the-dark outsole underfoot.
