While LeBron James has stirred up some water-cooler chat regarding his participation during the upcoming FIBA World Championship Tournament, Kobe Bryant is considered a safe bet to play for Team USA this summer. Yesterday, our good friends at Marquee Sole dropped another teaser, revealing Kobe’s logo on a curiously blue background. Turns out it was a close-up shot of the tongue of a Nike Zoom Kobe V in red, white, and blue – a colorway for Team USA Basketball. The design and graphics of this Kobe V is pretty bare-boned and straightforward – no iridescent upper, no cracked marble, no ice outsole, no speckled midsole – but that simplicity is reflective upon Kobe’s no nonsense, strictly business mindset when he’s on court. Check out the images of the Team USAB Nike Zoom Kobe V after the jump and keep an ear to Sneaker News, as we will update you on this latest Kobe V development. via Marquee Sole.
