Kobe Bryant and Nike Basketball just took to Periscope to unveil the Kobe 11, with easily the most exciting takeaway from the stream being Bryant's mention of a worldwide sneaker scavenger hunt.

Toward the end of the stream, Kobe said that he'd be hiding 20 autographed pairs of the sneakers in secret places around the world. It sounds like either Kobe or Nike will be putting out clues on where to find them via social media.

"There will be questions that pose as clues," Kobe explained. "Some of the questions will be kind of standard stuff – growing up questions and stuff like that. Others will be centered around innovation. It's important for them to really understand the product."

The global Kobe sneaker hunt is set to go down on Dec. 22.

UPDATE 12/22: As promised, Nike and Kobe Bryant are posting clues via Twitter on where to find the sneakers today. Find the first below and follow @NikeBasketball for more.
