The 2003-2004 NBA Season was the beginning to a major change for the Los Angeles franchise. It was the last season that Kobe and Shaq would be teammates, and it would be the last NBA Finals appearance for Kobe until he returned in 2008. It was also the year that Kobe consistently rocked Nike shoes, wearing the Zoom Huarache 2k4 in various PE colorways during the regular season and in the NBA Finals – the famed ‘5-game sweep’ at the hands of the Detroit Pistons. Although not an original colorway of the H2K4, this Black/Yellow colorway would have cracked Kobe’s ’04 rotation due to the simple Black/Yellow colorway – all it needs is a Kobe Shozoku logo on the heel! Don’t count on Bryant wearing these in the regular system because he’s got the Kobe System to support his feet, but don’t be surprised if you see these on the feet of his teammates! Check out the new detailed images below and stick with Sneaker News for release information. via kickz-lab.

These are awesome. I love the ankle strap. Never need to lace all the way up to get secure fit. Kind of like the Kobe VII Supreme. I just don't like removable sockliner.
