So Kobe got his 4 rings, and his 4 rings shoe, and now his biggest supporter is getting his own shoe as well. The puppet character Lil’ Dez from the Kobe/Lebron MVPuppets commercials has a signature Nike Big Nike dropping tomorrow, 10/27 at House of Hoops locations. I think this makes him the second puppet to have his own PE, the other being Lil’ Penny’s 1/2 cent. Big shoes for two little puppets.


The Lil’ Dez Big Nike has a completely red leather upper, with the block letter “NIKE” on the heel replaced by “LIL DEZ.” The little man himself is featured on the tongue, and his handwritten note “Congrats Kobe” is on the lateral side just below the collar. The outsole is white with sparse dark speckles.
