On Monday, Kobe Bryant and Nike unveiled the Los Angeles Lakers star’s latest shoe.

The Kobe 11s are pretty sweet. But an autographed pair would be sweeter.

During a Periscope event live from the Nike vault, Bryant revealed he would be hiding 20 signed sneakers all over the globe. There will be clues, which means that these spots should be pretty stealthy.

"There will be questions that pose as clues," Kobe said on Periscope (h/t Sole Collector). "Some of the questions will be kind of standard stuff—growing-up questions and stuff like that. Others will be centered around innovation. It's important for them to really understand the product."

The scavenger hunt will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 22, which is over two weeks before the 11s hit the market on Jan. 9.

You have to figure Nick Young will snatch at least one pair, so that leaves 19 for the rest of the world.

Happy hunting.
