As we wait for the Kobe 9's to drop, Nike and Black Mamba continue to drop releases from the Prelude Pack, and next up is the Kobe "Misery" Prelude III. It's a twist on the third sneaker from the original Kobe collection, and it's got a trippy fresco-inspired web design on the upper that rests on a black colorway.
In the clip below, Kobe recalls the painful loss to the Boston Celtics in the 2008 Finals and reveals why this shoe is called "Misery." Watch the short video below. -- Max Weinstein
