When Kobe Bryant appeared in a viral video jumping over a moving Aston Martin in a pair of Hyperdunks, the world instantly took to the forums, blogs and video sharing sites to express their reactions. For weeks their were consent debates about whether or not the video was real, which it of course wasn’t, but the controversy helped put the spot on the Hyperdunks for quite some time, along with the Aston Martin that appeared in the video.
In honor of that very video, and the amount of buzz it received around the world, Nike, Aston Martin and Kobe Bryant joined forces again to put together the Nike x Aston Marin “Kobe Bryant” Pack. The pack includes a Hyperdunk which we’ve previously previewed, and a Zoom Kobe V. Both of the sneakers feature gunmetal color schemes with the Hyperdunks featuring a burgundy leather inner lining, and the Zoom Kobe V using the hue on it’s tongue. Kobe’s name, the Aston Martin logo and the Nike Swoosh are all included on the tongue of the Hyperdunks, with the Kobe V incorporating them onto the insoles. One last touch to the Hyperdunks is a pair of lace locks reading “I Got This”
As if these aren’t already due to be a collector’s item, Nike will be releasing them in a double-box which once again includes Kobe’s name, the Aston Martin logo and the Swoosh on the outside of the box, and on wrapping paper. On the side of the box there’s repeating silhouettes of Kobe getting ready to leap over the Aston Martin with the phrase “Thats How You Do It” printed alongside the images.
The Nike x Aston Martin “Kobe Bryant” Pack will be limited to a total of 500 packs worldwide and will only launch through select Nike distributors. Limited EDT in Singapore has been lucky enough to be one of the boutiques to get their hand on some stock and they’ll be releasing what they have on March 23rd.
