Kevin Durant went on a summer-league rampage, played a 2011version of Marty McFly, and rocked the Nike Zoom KD IV during pre-season workouts. LeBron James just debuted his LeBron 9 ‘Cannon’ while co-hosting a star-studded exhibition game. In comparison to his Nike Basketball compatriots, Kobe Bryant, the third head of the Nike Basketball trio, has remained relatively low-key and under-the-radar during the summer. Now, it’s time for the five-time world championship to steal some of the spotlight, as Nike prepares for the introduction of the seventh chapter of the Nike Kobe saga.
Kobe Bryant arrived at the Nike Campus wearing the Nike Zoom Kobe VII, a sneaker that has begun to make its rounds around the interwebs; already noted for its removable ankle lock-down sleeve, the Zoom Kobe VII continues the breakthrough ‘soccer shoe’ design utilizing a low-cut construction stabilized by ample Flywire cables and a revised heel-counter. We’re still waiting for more details and specs for the Zoom Kobe VII, so until then, enjoy this dope on-feet shot of Kobe and his seventh and stick with Sneaker News for more updates regarding the Nike Zoom Kobe VII. via heidiburgett/iamjeffreyjason.
lets hope that other sample black/white midsole with the mamba webbing is the $140 and not the elite..like that shoe a lot!!!
The on foot pictures definitely give them more appeal. I would like to see some different colorways on these before I make any final judgement on them.
They're ok but I'm still stuck on how boring his line is. Since the IV all his shoes have been similar.
% of LA's pts scored in the Finals 2000: Shaq 38% > kobe 14%<-Shaq Finals MVP 2001: Shaq 33% > kobe 23%<-Shaq Finals MVP 2002: Shaq 36% > kobe 24%<-Shaq Finals MVP 2004: Shaq 26% < kobe 27% <- LA lost LOL Kobe has the record of missing the most shots in the finals history for TWO consecutive times which are 09 and 10 lmao. These are the yrs LA won. Despite Kobe's shot jacking, they still manage to win because they are packed with all stars and solid bench with the highest payroll, 100+million. Kobe Bryant is flat out the most overrated media hyped player in any sports history. Epic fail for Kobe and all you nuthuggers LMAO
They look even better on the feet. I liked the shoe the whole time, but it's definitely a must cop for me. Put that on wax.
For those who don't know, that dude said he was gonna start producing the knockoff VII right now, look for it soon on eBay
