Flash back to 2003. Kobe Bryant is arguably the biggest sneaker free agent of all-time and all brands (sans adidas) are after his services. Among the potential suitors was Nike, with whom Bryant now has a 10-shoe signature line under. Before Kobe signed his name on the dotted line, Nike wooed the star with a variety of different Player Exclusives, including Laker-themed Air Flight Huaraches.

Confirming rumors, one of Kobe's Air Flight Huarache PEs is expected to hit retail soon. @GC911 provides the first detailed look, which should please collectors hoping for a faithful reproduction.

Keep an eye out for more information on this upcoming retro soon.
