With Kobe Bryant's fifth championship in hand which came from defeating the hated Boston Celtics, the Kobe 5 "Prelude" is once again a celebratory colorway with bright gold and purple symbolizing the colors of the Los Angeles Lakers mixed with teal accents that give the shoe a pop art look. The Kobe logo on the tongue and the swoosh on the side panels uses a metallic gold finish symbolizing the Larry O'Brien trophy that is given to the NBA champion of that given year.
