Nike Launches Kobe X Podcast with Designer Eric Avar

Seemingly narrated by this guy, Nike just launched the most chocolaty smooth podcast discussing the conception of the Kobe X and how the relationship between Kobe & Eric continues to evolve.

‘Eric Avar is a soft spoken guy with a shaved head and a cyclists physique’ – Nike narrator with awesome voice

It’s cool to get an insight on the relationship between these two, as I’ve often heard Mr. Bryant can be a bit of a dick to work with (pause). It seems Kobe and Eric have forged a mutual respect for each other, with both having a seemingly ‘maniacal’ approach to their respective fields.

From the technology and thought process behind the latest signature shoe, plus random stories like jumping off of the top of boats during deep see fishing trips, check out Nike’s podcast, below.
