13. Nike Zoom Kobe II Strength "Orca"
The Kobe II Orcas shared similar design cues with LeBron's Soldier IIIs, with the lower part of the kicks Zoom build-up being almost identical as well as the patent leather hits on the toe. Bryant switched it up drastically from the Kobe I and started to come into his own in terms of his own signature make-ups—even though the shoe’s influences were clearly “Concord” related. The “Orcas” are easily the most slept on Kobe model with The Swoosh—and the multiple shoes for multiple purposes was foreshadowing of the System to come. You're welcome.
