One of the most popular colorways of the Nike Zoom Kobe VI was the Christmas Day 2010 ‘Grinch’. That nickname quickly stuck to the colorway for its obvious ties to the holiday, but the ‘Grinch’ was actually intended to be a ‘Green Mamba’, a real-life neon-green member of the mamba snake family. For the Nike Zoom Kobe VII, Kobe Bryant’s predatorial spirit branches out further into the wild, touching on the fierce and powerful aspects of the Great White Shark and the Cheetah, both brandishing lightning-quick speed and an inherent specialty of the hunt. Rumored to be Kobe’s Christmas Day 2011 sneaker, the Nike Zoom Kobe VII Supreme ‘Cheetah’ features a Violet/Black upper skin adapting the cheetah’s signature spotted appearance. The midsole, 3-D heel, and ‘Attack Strong’ Sleeve take on Volt and Electric Green with red laces finishing off the color profile. The ‘Cheetah’ cohesively bonds the Christmas Day ‘Grinch’ motif with the wild nature of the cheetah to form one of the funkiest Kobe VII designs we’ve seen thus far. We’ve got a look at the heel with the cheetah logo after the jump, so take a look and let us know what you think. via taobao.

Of course fools will be calling them heat anything limited that you won't see in every store is heat no matter how ugly smh. You same idiots are the reason these colors continue to get release. Btw incase most of you guys are blind there is a cheetah on the back tab heance the nickname.

Best color way of this model so far. No my color scheme but the design is tuff. I think it would have been a much better shoe in a real cheetah color way though.

They'd be insanely dope without the cheetah print. That just throws it off though..if they wanted to make a cheetah inspired sneaker, they should have stuck with colors inspired by the animal..like the wolfs and shark kobes.

Dont understand all the hate on the animals this year, pretty cool idea, especially the "Wolf" colorway. What I really don't understand is why this shoe is purple and green...
