Nike Black Mamba 24 - It's an Asian thing

I am sure by now that all the Kobe nut suckers are aware that Kobe's name was derived from the popular Japanese beef that comes from a city in the Kansai region, Kobe (神戸 , Koh-Beh). Unfortunately, Nike AND basketball are not popular in Japan, they are however, めちゃくちゃ POPULAR in China. Outside of the U.S, basketball is number one in China. And guess who is opening a grand WHQ in Shanghai? Yupe, Nike. And given Kobe's insanely popular status out in China, it just makes perfect sense to release another take down rendition of Kobe Bryant's signature shoes with a Hyperfuse upper for China, especially since Hyperfuse technology was inspired by the Chinese basketball players for it's breathability and construction. So after saying all that, here we see the Nike Black Mamba 24, another China region release that we'll never get to see in the U.S. Look for these in the summer of 2013, around the time of the Championship parade, LOL! Images via AaronKnows
