Ten years ago, Kobe Bryant entered the NBA with the same apprehensive excitement as most High School league jumpers. Yes he dominated the High School ranks and his talent, work ethic, athleticism, and Basketball instincts were undeniable, yet despite all of this, his age and inexperience kept the critics talking. Now with three championships, countless All-Star appearances and records, and perhaps this year’s MVP, Kobe Bryant is widely regarded as the best professional basketball player in the world.
Though he is light years away from his days at Lower Merion High School in Pennsylvania, Kobe Bryant will always be an ACE. As part of his deal with Nike, the Lower Merion Aces are sponsored by Nike and the Kobe Bryant line. Through this sponsorship, the Aces Varsity Basketball team is given PE editions of Kobe’s footwear. This year the team received the “Ace” Nike Zoom Kobe III PE and for the first time ever, the High School PE is scheduled to release in June at the House of Hoops and is available now at select accounts in Taipei.
The “Aces” Nike Zoom Kobe III features a White/Grey/Dark Red upper that matches the Lower Merion uniform.
An exact release date for the “Aces” Lower Merion Nike Zoom Kobe III in the US has not been solidified. Once a release date becomes available it will be posted.
