In preparation for the 2006 All Star Games at the Toyota Center, Nike did a “The Warriors” style round up.  Six boutique owners across the country were invited to design a colorway of the Nike Zoom Kobe One, and given the chance to present their designs at a live event in Houston for Kobe Bryant to judge. The winner of the competition, Premium Goods was gifted 24 pairs of their design.  The inspiration for the design was Kobe’s #8 at the time which if turned horizontal represents his “infinite energy.”
