The Nike Kobe "Fade To Black" 2016 is also known as the "Black Mamba" Pack and is a special collection of thirteen sneakers to honor Kobe Bryant's final season in the NBA. It consists of all eleven Kobe signature shoes, the Huarache 2k4, and the Hyperdunk '08. Nike's "Fade to Black" Kobe pack, a sneaker retrospective honoring the final season of Kobe Bryant, is officially underway. The epic set began yesterday with the release of the "Fade to Black" Huarache 2K4, an all-white shoe that will be the lightest of the bunch. From there, it's all signature offerings save for the Hyperdunk '08 that Bryant wore, which will break up the pack about halfway through. After spending the early part of his career with adidas, Kobe Bryant joined Nike Basketball in 2003. Since then, he’s leapt over speeding Aston Martins for Nike and effectively branded himself as the “Black Mamba.” Kobe’s signature kicks often offer a sleek low top that contrasts against Bryant’s high profile, while offering designs that complement his calculated, reptilian style.
New Air Jordan Shoes, Known to many as the Fade To Black Pack thanks to an FTB designation on the box labels, the Black Mamba Pack begins with the Huarache 2K4 in a pristine white colorway and it slowly transitions into an almost all-black rendition of the Nike Kobe 11. Each box will also contain coordinates that highlight cities that have played in a meaningful role in Mamba's career. The end is near. Nike has just revealed the Black Mamba Pack, Kobe Bryant's final pack of shoes leading up to his curtain call in the NBA on April 13. Each Nike signature shoe is represented in the pack along with two very important kicks in his career, the Nike Zoom Huarache 2K4 (his first main shoe as a Nike athlete) and the Nike Hyperdunk 2008 (he helped introduce the Hyperdunk back during the 2008 Summer Olympics in China).
New Jordans 2016, As the capstone to Nike's "Fade to Black" sneaker collection in honor of Kobe Bryant's storied 20-year basketball career, the Nike Kobe 11 FTB "Black Mamba" is the last in the series to release, fittingly on the night of Kobe's last match between the Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz. Featuring a simple black Flyknit upper, tonal leather is applied to the tongue, heel counter and pull tab, while a solemn golden Swoosh commands the design. Today, Nike unveils the Kobe Black Mamba Collection, a thirteen-shoe tribute that includes every Nike Kobe signature shoe as well as the famed Huarache 2k4 and original Hyperdunk from 2008. This celebration spans Kobe's entire tenure with Nike, a partnership that began in 2003 after the Lakers star parted ways with rival adidas. It began with groundbreaking performance models like the Huarache 2k4 and 2k5 and led to the debut of the Kobe signature series in early 2006. Since then.
