Nike Zoom Kobe VII – Black – Grey – White | New Photos
There are two black, white and grey Nike Zoom Kobe VIIs on the way — which one will you choose? Will it be the Supreme edition with its Del Sol yellow accents and ‘Play Strong’ removable bootie, or will you go with the more affordable and likely easier to obtain ‘Play Fast’-equipped pair pictured above? This ZKVII differs from the Supreme edition by its use of a black bootie instead of yellow, one that’s not fastened around the ankle and heel and should feel a bit lighter. It really is a tough decision for Black Mamba fans, many of whom will simply purchase all of the colorways released, but you can see some new images after the jump to aid in your decision and be sure to check back with Sneaker News for updates on these and all the Zoom Kobe 7 release dates. via RMK
Nike Zoom Kobe VII
the kobe shoes are badass! kobe haters get outta here and get some lebabybron shoes, the reason you guys wouldnt pay for these shoes are cuz you know you cant handle it, it'll prob break your ankles LMAO! thats why they have lebabybron shoes with ankle supports, well you guys can always buy ankle inusrance from kobe before you try his shoes lol.
I agree with some of the comments here. I wore Kobe 4-6, and it really served their purpose in the court.. I have always been a low to mid cut shoe type of player.. i really dont like the hi cut type like the hyperdunk, i guess i just prefer mid.. but this new kobe 7? not really sure if ill buy one coz i really dont like the way it looks.. maybe ill stick with my ZK6..
Personally I like the Kobe 7 (without the sleeve, of course). People are complaining that they are too plain, but if the shoe actually had more progress in the design, then the very same people would be bitchin about that. I usually dig the understated shoe designs, although it might not be as interesting as the flashier, out-of-the-box designs. Call me old school, but the simplistic look with only a touch of flavor is my style, and for me, this shoe fits that description.
People hated on the DB IV's then the net crashed..700 outside of mercer and nike nyc lined up-haters on the kobes will see them in person then cop as usual.
seriously kobe needs a new designer!kobe 4-6 are right but this one is unacceptable....pls.. nike...
looks like he took the concept from the aj2011 witht eh two different insoles, i have a feeling these will have another insole and got up 30-50 in value
i believe these are the "walking cane" colorway of the kobe 7s. it'll surely be hit among senior citizens.
to me it looks good,but it's obviously a basketball sneakers if it performs great,then it's fulfilled it's purpose
the outriggers destroyed the shoe for me, It made the shoe look so heavy and so bulky... its like a stone in that shoe
and this is why lebron sneakers always outsells kobe's.. even in adidas kobe sneaks were ugly.. remember the one that looked like a clothes iron LOL
Interested to see if Nike plans to play around with other textures or designs on the upper. Do agree that it's plain, but it's not ugly.
Oh so plain and ugly. Hall of Fame player, Wall of Shame sneakers. Every single Kobe has been ugly, imo.
personally i prefer the texture on the samples from awhile back...really hope they end up releasing them... http://sneakernews.com/2011/05/10/nike-zoom-kobe-...
i was thinking the same. the forefoot of the shoe is simple stripes. i really hope they plan to do something different on other styles. I love all the Chaos actually. so these may pop more with those colorways.
That's your opinion on how you think all Kobe's are ugly. But for sure they are not, 98% can agree. I think Kobe just needs a new designer for his signature sneaker for Nike..We just keep seeing the same thing with a few tweaks..
@Matic, you probably shouldn't assume because I happen to like most non-retro shoes. I'm only 17, how could I be a retro hypebeast? Sure, I like retros, most people do? I love Lebron's. I'm just not a fan of Kobe's. @AdiWord, yeah I do think they all are, and how do you know 98% of the people that can agree? But after that, I agree with you. Plus I'm not a hypebeast at all, that term is a cliche now. There's really no such thing.
