6. Nike Zoom Kobe VI "Duke" 

When: 2011

Who: Nolan Smith 

With Kobe claiming he was heavily considering being a Blue Devil if he didn't jump straight to the league, it was no surprise that Duke would get laced with its own colorway of Kobe's signature joints. The upper featured Duke's away blue colorway on a reptile-like material and the Nike Zoom cushioning catered to guards like Nolan Smith to wreak havoc in the ACC.
