Perhaps it’s Kobe Bryant’s expectation of a deep playoff run and Olympic Games taking up so much time in 2012 that he’s just toying with the idea of playing overseas to get some media attention, instead of actually playing in games like many of his NBA co-workers. But there might not even be an NBA Playoff slate next spring the way things are going, so this Nike Zoom Kobe VII seems appropriate with its fairly generic take on the ‘away’ look. It’s a tame colorway to be sure, but the Zoom Kobe 7’s unique ribbed upper gives this basic trio a real boost and suggests they could steal attention away from pretty much any team’s road uniforms, no matter how colorful. Take a closer look after the jump and let us know how the ‘regular’ ZKVII stacks up against the bootie-equipped Zoom Kobe VII Supreme. via HC

idk how people are saying these are wack, these look WAY better than the past 3 lowtop kobe sneakers, maybe not better than the 5s, but def better than the 6s
i thought the reg version is the rattlesnake versions..those rock..these look ok but a jazzed up hyperfuse..i was pumped for those reattlesnake joints..these look ok..may get one cw but just not feelin the overall look of the shoe!!!
I don't understand why would you even need a built-in bootie in the first place when they're already low tops to begin with. Might as well make some mid-tops. Or better yet, just buy some ankle braces yourself. I'm pretty sure you would come out cheaper doing that instead of dropping $180. The inner bootie is a gimmick. As for the ones without the bootie, these are some beauties. Count me in to cop!
these are ok...but a step backward. kobe 7's and lebron 9's are saving me some mad cash this year....
