Kobe Bryant racked up his fifth overall gold ring this past June and as he begins his quest to match Michael Jordan and his two championship three-peats, Kobe fans will have an opportunity to add the Nike Zoom Kobe V ‘5 Rings’ to the collection of Kobe Vs. Much like the Nike Zoom Kobe IV ‘4 Rings’, the updated version utilizes a gradient scheme in Kobe’s Laker colorways, although this time it will be used only on the midsole and the on the 5 Rings graphic on the upper (which begins the yellow-to-purpole fade just on the upper lace placket of the shoe). The graffiti-like graphic features numerous illustrations of the number five and is printed all over the upper, with the exception of the heel cup and mesh collar. The Kobe V 5 Rings will feature a translucent outsole as well a special ‘MVP’ insole, paying tribute the Black Mamba’s MVP performance throughout the seven-game series.
