October has been the month in which we’ve seen new signature models either unveiled or debuted for Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, so it’s only right that arguably the world’s single most popular roundball player can get in on the action. The Nike Zoom Kobe VII has the potential to stand out above all the rest because even though the Melo M8 comes in dope New York Knicks colorways and even though you can design your own custom LeBron 9s on NIKEiD, the Zoom Kobe 7 is the only model featuring a removable inner bootie. And when something’s easily removable, it’s easily swapped, which suggests Kobe collectors will have a leg up on the rest of the sneakerhead population when it comes time to creating novel combinations. Should be an interesting season if we actually have one, and luckily we’re getting the Zoom Kobe VII at retail, probably by the end of the year if the past three drops are any indication. Check out more of this black and Del Sol ‘away’ look after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for updates including all the Nike Zoom Kobe VII release dates. via weibo

i dont really have any good or bad to say bout da new KB's.... ez pass fa me tho.. can save doe fa sum Griffeys & J's
I'm initially NOT impressed and I love his recent signature shoes. I am going to have to wait and see if I come around to it, but these look like Dream Seasons or them Venomenons that Asia receives. I'm shocked how generic it looks.
they have never shown it without the bootie, would it have a tongue at all if your took it out. Perhaps a different piece that you could swap in that would just be a tongue with no extra ankle support?
Smh they look the same as the 6's and 5's.That bootie shit is just distracting people from the actual design on the kicks.
A huuuuuuge pass from me. Between the Lebron 9's, Kobe 7's, Jordan X's and XII's, Nike is trying to save me a ton of money this year. Thanks Nike!
just give me the light version of this aka the zoom air model..for those that dont know the black/white mid sole version one..i want those bad..how that is less than these is beyond me..that shoe is fire!!! period!
