Spalding launches a limited edition basketball on April 12th. The product is created in collaboration with American athlete Kobe Bryant, satisfying the official dimensions of NBA balls. The release is part of the brand's 94 Series.
The aesthetic of the Kobe Bryant 24K borders on exquisite elegance. The limited edition basketball is adorned in luxurious Mamba snakeskin composite cover, with embossed lettering boasting Spalding's logo, as well as Kobe Bryant's signature. The premium product is specifically designed for indoor use and understandably so. Available exclusively on Spalding's and Dick's Sporting Goods' websites, the sophisticated basketball retails for $125 USD. In addition, those who choose to purchase the slick offering will receive it in a custom Kobe Bryant 94 Series display packer.
