It seems every week somebody is commemorating Kobe Bryant for his first-ever NBA MVP.
Nike has stepped in on more then one occasion, capitalizing on the marketable nature of Kobe. Products ranging from artwork to exclusive colorways of his performance ball shoes have been dropping left & right. Seen here is the Nike "Big Nike" model. Details include a black premium leather upper marked by MVP on the heel and highlights of gold. Also, Kobe's stats from last season are showcased on the shoe's insole.

The Nike "Big Nike" Kobe should be available to every "true" fan of Kobe Bryant, myself included. But Nike...will be Nike. To fulfill the lifestyle aspect of things, this model is allocated specifically to friends and family with sources claiming less then 100 pairs produced. So basically, if you don't know Kobe personally...you will have to sell a kidney to acquire these.
