The Nike Zoom Kobe 3 had an innovative design that added heavy overlays to the upper and outsole of the shoe. This unique shoe made its debut in April of 2008. See More
The Nike Zoom Kobe 3 features a heavily textured upper that recalls the net of a basketball hoop. This look wasn't just an aesthetic decision, although it did set up some great contrasting colorways. The netting also helped support the foot. Other cutting-edge technology built-in to the Kobe 3 included a carbon fiber plate in the sole. A full-sized Zoom Air unit was also incorporated into the midsole to improve comfort for the wearer. Nike hasn't revisited the Kobe 3 much since the first release. One of the only re-releases of this shoe is the Nike Kobe 3 Prelude Misery, in 2013. Designed to reflect Bryant's feelings after losing to the Celtics in the NBA Finals, this is a dark shoe with angry pops of color. Most other colorways, like the White/Varsity Purple-Varsity Maize, are less busy and date to the 2007-08 era of the original.
