“Apologize to Kanye West for wasting 2 million dollars of his time.” BOOM!
What’s the #KobeSystem and what can it do to you? I guess it’s not just what can the system do for you but where do you go once you’ve already reached “the beyond” As Nike put it, “Where do you go from the top? You go over the top. The #KobeSystem: Success for the Successful is Kobe’s winning, results-oriented philosophy on how to adapt to succeed. You’re Welcome.”
I’m sure you all remember the short film Black Mamba directed by Robert Rodriguez and starring Kobe Bryant. Well Kobe is back in action (although the NBA season has not kicked off yet) and stars in Milano Kalibro Kobe. A film that I really hope gets more airtime than just the trailer posted online.
According to Highsnobiety, the film aslo features “athletes from Nike crew including Marco Belinelli, Claudio Marchisio, Marco Materazzi, Gennaro Gattuso, Gianpaolo Pazzini and Alberto Aquilani.”
It’s nothing new that sneaker enthusiasts might like a birthday cake designed after their favorite shoe. We have seen the same done with gadgets and other items alike. But it’s this particular sneaker birthday cake that actually caught my attention. Why? Because it’s Adidas Kobe, the shoe I wore back in the beginning of 2000′s. A shoe which I liked very much, although it was definitely flawed. The major issue was the breaking lace loops. I had like 3 different pairs of this shoe and all of them broke the same way. Still although it looked like something from a Sci-Fi movie (inspired by Audi TT) the shoe was good for me. And the cake doesn’t look bad either.
The time has come, All-Star Weekend is here and so is the premiere of the Black Mamba, a film by Robert Rodriguez. The last two trailers have promised a lot with stellar cast of Kobe Bryant, Bruce Willis, Danny Trejo and Kanye West this film should be one of the biggest Nike ads in history. Along the past few days Nike has released pics and teasers of the film which is now live. Watch the film after the jump!
Conan is a hilarious dude and when Kobe Bryant visited his show on it was bound to be good. Not only did they chat about Kobe’s alter ego the Black Mamba, they touched upon Kobe’s rivalries with Kevin Garnett and Shaquille O’neal, the coaching strategies of Phil Jackson and cussing in foreign languages, not to mention President Obama’s trash talking. Conan also introduced Kobe’s new Nike Zoom Kobe VI 3D sneakers. It was a pretty hilarious interview so check it out.
We’ve seen trailers of the Black Mamba, a film by Robert Rodriguez. We’ve seen a clip about ophidiophobia but what about the shoe these clips promote? Sneakernews provided an insight into Nike Zoom Kove VI event held at Nike vault at the Staples Center, Los Angeles. The event did not just preview the trailer 2 for the Black Mamba feature film but also introduced a Kobe VI sneakers in different colorways. One of the sweetest styles presented is the Black, White and Varsity Red sneaker with the black and metallic “snake” upper representing the Black Mamba.
Fear of snakes or ophidiophobia is a very common fear. I mean even Indiana Jones threaded these squamates. Snakes have a pretty bad reputation and Black Mamba might be one of the most feared individuals among snakes. So does the Ophidiophobia also include fear for Kobe Bryant aka the Black Mamba on the basketball court? I’m pretty sure most of the players have mixed feelings of fear and respect towards the the Black Mamba and he would not gotten the moniker without any reason. The latest Nike Basketball ad/clip looks into this particular fear while promoting the new Kobes.
I’m sure most of you caught the trailer for Robert Rodriguez’ the Black Mamba starring Kobe Bryant, Danny Trejo and Bruce Willis. Well this already somewhat epic Nike Basketball production is just getting crazier. It seems that Mr. Kanye West is also starring in the film playing role of the Boss. As Bruce Willis put it in the trailer, “some take souls, some take scalps, boss takes shoes.” So Kobe must fight not jsut for his soul but also for his Nike Zoom Kobe VI kicks because the Boss wants those shoes.
You might remember the awesome NBA figures/collectibles by MINDstyle and Coolrain? The other day I came across an awesome set of photos for the NBA Collector Series by these two toy/design houses. The figures themselves are just awesome, but when you combine great surrounding for the photoshoot you get something even better. At least the pictures made me smile.
