Since joining the Nike Basketball division in 2004, Kobe Bryant has been an integral part of the Swoosh. The release of the ‘5 AM Flight’ Kobe X marks the tenth signature Swoosh sneaker for the Black Mamba. In celebration, Bryant and sneaker designer Eric Avar narrated a podcast where they talk about working together and their unique relationship.
Through the newly-established Nike News official Soundcloud (didn’t know that the Swoosh had one) is a podcast where the veil is pulled back to let fans hear things they wouldn’t otherwise. Gems are definitely dropped, namely that there will be four initial colorways of the Nike Kobe X.
