“[Kobe Bryant] originally said, ‘I want the lowest, lightest basketball shoe ever.'”

The Nike Zoom Kobe VI is set to launch later this week and the latest Kobe Bryant signature from Nike Basketball represents years of refinement.  2008 saw the Zoom Kobe 4 break what was once thought to be a cardinal rule of basketball sneaker ankle support with Kobe choosing a soccer style cut because, as Nike designer Eric Avar relays, “[Soccer players] do all the same movements I do, and they’re always in a lowtop.”  Avar divulges further improvements in the latest Zoom Kobe shoe including a lower, lighter sole design with Zoom Air cushioning and a dual-layer memory foam insole, and you can’t forget the ZK6’s black mamba-nispired scaly upper.  Click through to see a full video of Eric Avar discussing the Nike Zoom Kobe 6 and stick with Sneaker News for upcoming release dates.
