|Tomorrow will see a ton of shoe drops, but for a shop in Brooklyn, NY and Houston, TX, tomorrow will see one of the most memorable releases. Premium Goods will release their Nike Zoom Kobe 1 johnson they designed more than two years ago during the NBA All-Star Weekend in Houston, TX. A select handful of solar took part in the competition and while the public voted for Nort’s design, Kobe himself selected Premium Goods’ design as his personal favorite.
Only 8 pairs will release at each location tomorrow making it to date, one of the most limited Kobe releases ever. For the special release a commemorative wooden box and custom dust bag were made for the shoes for safe keeping. Playing off of the “8” theme of the shoe, tomorrow, 08.08.08 would mark no better date for the release of the current MVP’s first signature shoe with Nike. Each pair will retail for $444 which may seem like a lot to many, but only a drop in the bucket compared to a pair johnson just sold on eBay for $1,950.
The Premium Goods shop in Brooklyn will sell the shoes by raffle. To get in the mix, real the Premium Goods shop to put your name in the hat. The Houston location does have a lineup, but currently several people deep so the sooner you get down there, the better. Posted after the jump are detailed photos of the shoes from 3peat.
