The Kobe Bryant “Prelude Pack” will only get better and better as time goes on as its eighth installment will ultimately lead up to the launch of the Nike Kobe 9.

With that said, here are official images to the this weekend’s Nike Zoom Kobe III (3) “Prelude”. Dubbed “Misery” as a result of Kobe Bryant’s few triumphs, see more of the shoe below:

With an innovative, web-like upper, the Kobe Prelude III is built for premium performance. The fresco-inspired artistry sets it apart, with a story of ‘misery’ coming to life – a nod to the misery of defeat Kobe Bryant felt in a game 6 loss to Boston in the 2008 finals.

The scrambled, abstract graphics are featured beneath the cage-life upper. The geometric web design also translates to the outsole for maximize traction.

The Kobe Prelude Pack features all eight of Bryant’s signature shoes and celebrates the stories behind some of his most defining moments. Eight revolutionary art movements have been paired with eight milestones in Bryant’s career to recreate each of his signature shoes.

Each shoe will be available in limited quantities on Nike.com (North America, Greater China and Western Europe) and at select retailers in North America and Greater China. The Kobe Prelude III is available on Saturday, December 21.
