KoF Live: Unboxing The Nike Kobe 11 Mamba Day iD (Video)

On April 13, 2016, Kobe Bryant played his final NBA game and scored 60 points in a virtuoso performance because of course he did; he was going to try and top every final game by a superstar athlete ever and amazingly enough, he succeeded. Meanwhile, sneakerheads on that same day flooded Staples Center’s Nike Vault for a shot at the Black Mamba Pack and NIKEiD to order the limited edition Mamba Day graphic. One of the fastest – if not the fastest – selling NIKEiD options ever offered, demand for the Mamba Day graphic was so great that the wait time went from the usual 30 days or less to 2-3 months. When I placed my order, the original estimate was sometime in July.

Well, at least it was going to arrive right around my birthday, right?

Imagine my surprise when the kicks arrived today weeks ahead of schedule. We unboxed the package live on our Facebook page and the reaction ranged from sadness over not getting them to others still waiting for their pair to arrive. Glad I got mine, I guess…
