Kobe’s final season is slowly but surely coming to an end as the regular season will be ending in mid-April. That means that Kobe has about seven weeks left in what has been a hell of a career for one of the greatest of all-time. So how can Nike make it better?

They’ll say farewell to Kobe by releasing his entire sneaker collection beginning with the Air Zoom Huarache 2K4 and ending with the newest Kobe 11. The Pack/Collection which is being named the “Fade To Black” collection will start of with all-white colorways and will evolve in color and ultimately conclude with an all-black Kobe 11. If you take a look at the two leaked style sheets above you can see the sneaker along with its official colorway listed next to it and it shows each sneaker getting darker with each successive model.

The Nike Kobe Fade To Black Pack is expected to begin releasing in early March with the final sneaker (Kobe 11) releasing on the final day of the NBA regular season when Kobe officially says goodbye for good.

Here are the expected release dates for each shoe. Stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for updates on this story.

Author’s Take

What an amazing gesture by Nike if this pack is indeed true. To bring back all of Kobe’s signature sneakers to celebrate his storied career is a great idea. I’m sure every single shoe from this pack will sell out almost instantly. Good luck completing the entire pack.
