Maybe something similar to the colorway of the HTM 9??? It's pretty rational reasoning

If they were smart they would drop the 81 point games and mass produce them. Guaran damn tee they would sell every single pair.

After every colorway of the one rotted on shelves firs time around its gonna be hella funny seeing people clam for these.

Whats taking nike so long to retro a lebron? Hes already on the xi.

Didnt nike retro the first jordan in 93 or 94?

These were the only Kobe's I ever cared for honestly.. Hope I can get a pair if they drop and they aren't some ridiculous colorway.
post #65 of 15724
The first Jordan retros came out in part because he retired for the first time though, with Nike unsure if he'd be back, and neither Lebron nor Kobe (at least hopefully not for a couple years) are quite there. It'd kind of be new territory for Nike to start mass releasing retros for an active player while he also has a new sig on the market. Wouldn't be out of the question, but you'd kind of wonder if retroing & releasing the older models would cannibalize sales of the newest model.

I could see them doing a few QS releases leading up to the 9s, but I kind of doubt Nike would start actively releasing tons of Kobe retros already since he hasn't officially retired yet. I guess following the rumors maybe we'll see QS releases of the Kobe I-VI in a new colorway, then they'll disappear til Kobe's officially done. Guess we'll find out.

Cant wait to see what colorways we get
post #68 of 15724

Preludes until the 9 release would definitely have nike taking over my bank transactions this is definitely a smart move on Nikes part IF they follow through

If indeed prelude to the 9, these will probably end up being difficult to get... Unless colorways blow me away, I won't lose sleep over getting a pair. Id rather look for older pairs I don't have for cheap.

The "Multi" color description might be some pattern we'll see on the Kobe IX, and they'll release 1-8 with said pattern.

Just a combination of a few ideas here, but imagine if they were to release 1-8 with flyknit as a prelude to the 9s. Just think of how amazing a pair of flyknit 5s would be... :smokin

Even if that's the case, it would still be a strange decision to do it prior to him retiring.

Ha, I guess we both thought the same in each others respective gyms. laugh.gif

I wore the 1's and 2's heavily on the hardwood when they first released. People didn't know what I had on.

Many of my friends had the Kobe I. I remember when the shoe went to outlets and was able to get the blackouts for very cheap. Miss that colorway.

I know a lot of people that had a different shoe that was exactly like the Kobe 1's but were cheaper and a takedown model.

Just really hoping that it's not super-cheap materials and bizarre CWs. I know that this is Nike's basic gameplan these days, but as a fan of the shoes and of Kobe, and retros from his signature line would be most appreciated in their original form.

Wearing the MPLS CW today myself, and the quality is still great, the materials feel great, and the shoe is super comfortable. And given the size of the silhouette (ie - not a low top), it's not a heavy shoe at all. Yes it's heavier than 4-8, but it's BUILT to be heavier, rather than the stripped-down, super lightweight profile shoes that have dominated the line more recently.

Do it right Nike, or don't do it at all. I don't want EM or Flyknit or any other random tech that wasn't there before. Save that for when you retro the newer ones that actually used flywire and so on.

(This plea will fall on deaf ears, won't it?)

Top 5 shoe to hoop in personally. Please give us a decent bunch of colorways, have the quality on point and price tag not sky high.

would empty my bank account for a pair of flyknit V's as long as the cushion and tech is exactly like the original.

That "prelude" makes me think these may be the new venomenom or something...but appreciated if it is a retro. All I have is ASGs

If Nike does a flyknit version of 1-6 I will weep tears of joy.

If not I'll gladly take retro's, just hope the colorways aren't too crazy.

nike is 100% going to release an all camo colorway, like every retro they do these days

Sign me up for these if "BlackOuts" drop. My size 11 had a hole on them for repeated use.

Do you guys remember Nike doing something similar in 2009 when Kobe Won his 4th Championship and the Nike Website had something about the Kobe 1s. It was odd at the time because Kobe wore the IVs. If anybody has a screenshot or a link where a pic was provided post it please. I know many nike kobe fans know this
