Nike Zoom Kobe VII – Release Info
Just last night, Sneaker News showed you Kobe Bryant wearing his new Nike Zoom Kobe VII during a trip out to the Nike Campus. Turns out, he wasn’t just wearing the Nike Zoom Kobe VII, but the Nike Zoom Kobe VII Supreme, one of three different Kobe VII renditions to become available during this cycle. The Supreme designation ($180) is for the version that utilizes the removable ankle lock-down bootie, as seen on the ‘Concord’ and Black/White-Del Sol colorway that we already showed you. A ‘regular’ version without the ankle sleeve will become available in February 2012 with a price-tag of$140, and the $200 Elite, likely a ‘Playoff’ shoe, in mid-May. The first Nike Zoom Kobe VII to become available will in fact be the Black/White-Del Sol Supreme, hitting stores this December 23rd. What are your thoughts on the ‘Supreme’? Check out all the upcoming colorways below and stick with Sneaker News for more updates. via ISS.

the ridiculous price for the added ankle straps would be almost reasonable if the shoe was nice by itself. but its not. its ugly
umm $180 price tag?.. yeahhh theres things called hyper dunks that are prob 10x better then these and only cost oh bout $130! yeah nike these kobes are r gonna make u some profit.. right
Why would they try and drop these the same day as the Concords? No one will be paying attention these, except for those people who cant get a pair of the Concords.
I don't buy this shit 180.00 is too damn much! we dont buy them they will have to come down on that price no more then 140.00 at best for these extra regular ass shoes. Nike is trippin and Kobe is too!
dont get me wrong, it looks like a mad good sneaker to ball in. But when i saw that price-tag it was an automatic no.
What no one is including is that these have two sock liners....One high "Play Strong" and the other low "Play Fast"....pics will pop up soon.
People are just going to wait for the elite and STLL get them to stunt in not enough of a style change for 2bills....steve nash pass.
Release all those 7s...I don't care! I got what I need 6's >>>>>>>>>>>>>7's. Nike is just ripping us off. Don't fall into the trap folks, they're like drugs...addicting. Buy what you need...not want. Save your hard-earned $$$$.
Concept is cool but it looks sloppy. Even when Kobe was wearing it they looked bad on his foot. The design looks like it should have came out 3 years ago.
I'm shocked these are at a starting point of $180. Is the ankle strap that great that warrants a huge increase in price? If he wanted ankle support then go back to a midtop sneaker. That would still be about $140 price point! No way am I supporting these huge increase in signature sneaker prices. Lockout, recession, and inflation is enough reason for me to sneaker hunt at outlets, I use kicks to play in and $180 is a big hell no.
