Kobe Bryant – “Mamba Mentality” – Black Soles – PLT
What more can be said about Kobe? He will echo into eternity as future generations will hold court every few years and talk about one of the greatest players to ever lace up a pair of kicks and take it to whomever night in and night out.
As the great ones tend to emerge through evolution and adapting to any of the challenges that come along all in an effort to be the best at one’s craft then the Black Mamba is the epitome of what the word EVOLUTION truly means.
As Kobe began that transformation it was quite evident that the work he put in instead of going to the clubs proved to everyone, but more importantly to himself, that to be the best he would have to have the desire, the drive, and literally being insane but in the end it paid off.
He went from shooting air balls and doubting himself to hitting big game winning shots which allowed him to win 3 NBA Championships with “The Big Aristotle” and 2 NBA Championships as the focal point of the offense.
Encore Kicks L.L.C. would like to take this opportunity to introduce the: “Mamba Mentality”.
Kobe Bryant embodied that “Mamba Mentality” as he embraced all the love and all the hate which only increased his motivation to destroy you on the hardwood.
As you engage with the “Mamba Mentality” sneaker you will notice not only the “Mamba Mentality” quote on the outside wall of each shoe, you will also see a headshot of Kobe with his face being made out of his words and quotes. Encore Kicks L.L.C. was also able to capture “The Black Mamba” and “The Big Aristotle” on the inside wall of each shoe as “Batman & Robin” was securing the franchises future.
Please enjoy this design as once you wear them or place them within your collection…..it will turn into a conversation piece.
“Learn to love the hate. Embrace it. Enjoy it. You earned it. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and everyone should have one about you. Haters are a good problem to have. Nobody hates the good ones. They hate the great ones.”
“BE DIFFERENT”, “BE ORIGINAL”, “BE YOU”
