The Nike Zoom Kobe I is the first signature shoe for and inspired by the game's fiercest player, Kobe Bryant. The most sought-after black/maize colorway sold out in minutes during a special, limited pre-release sale on Nike.com and will not be available to anyone other than those lucky few who bought a pair during this sale until Saturday, February 18th, which is the official release date.
