Can you believe that Kobe Bryant would now be entering his sixteenth NBA season? What’s even more incredible is that he’s still an elite player, with some experts making the case that the Black Mamba should be in the Top 5 of the controversial ESPN #NBArank list (he was placed at #7, behind LeBron, Howard, Wade, Nowitzki, Durant, and CP3). The hard truth is that Kobe’s elite status is beyond its peak, but don’t think for a bit that teams wouldn’t build around the 33-year-old five-time NBA champion. For his seventh signature shoe, Nike Basketball will introduce something completely new for the Nike Zoom Kobe line – three separate installements! We detailed the base Kobe VII earlier today, but here’s a detailed look at the Nike Zoom Kobe VII Supreme; it features the removable insole with a ‘Play Strong’ support, which features an attached ankle sleeve, giving the Kobe VII Supreme a tongue-less construction. The Kobe VII Supreme retails at $180, higher than the Nike LeBron 9; does that make the Supreme the best that Nike Basketball has to offer? A detailed viewing of the upcoming Kobe VII awaits you below, so give it a good look and let us know your thoughts below. via hoopchina.
