When images of the Nike Zoom Kobe V Team USAB first dropped, Kobe fans were eagerly awaiting the 2010 FIBA World Championships to see Kobe rock this patriotic colorway of his signature shoe. Unfortunately, Kobe will be sitting out this summer’s games in order to help his index finger heal properly, and his absence will certainly be felt. With no true “winner” on the Team USAB roster, the Kobe-less squad will have a tough task ahead of them. In any case, the Kobe V USA will still release with the trail-inspired obsidian/red laces. These have just dropped at Nikestore but you can also try to snag a pair on eBay.
