Kobe Bryant fans both young and old will have an edition of his latest Nike signature shoe, the Kobe X, to add to their collections on Wednesday.

The Kobe X Hero will be available for kids, and the Kobe X Liberty will be available for men, with retail prices of $135 and $180, respectively. A grade-school version of the Liberty will also be available, with a retail price of $135.

Inspired by Bryant’s fascination with superheroes as a kid, the Kobe X Hero features a cave purple and court purple upper, with black on the swoosh branding, heel counter, tongue and above the midsole. Also on the upper is a lightning pattern toward the heel. The shoe is brought together with a light crimson midsole and purple outsole.

The Liberty, inspired by Bryant’s favorite football team, the Philadelphia Eagles, features a radiant emerald upper with black on the tongue, heel counter and collar, and a metallic silver swoosh. Its radiant emerald midsole and icy translucent overlay bring the shoe together.
