We were tipped off on what Nike has planned for this year's Mamba Day when DeMar DeRozan debuted a special colorway of the Zoom Kobe 1 Protro in early March. It appears that's only the tip of the iceberg, as fellow Nike Basketball athletes will also be paying homage to the future Hall of Famer in April.
When this new Nike PG2 surfaced, it instantly drew comparisons to Bryant's Prelude Pack, particularly the graphics used on the upper of the Kobe 6. The shoe is indeed Prelude-inspired and will be releasing on Friday, Apr. 13—Mamba Day. The word is that other sneakers, like the Kyrie 4, will also be in the mix.
