What is this?, Kobe asks as he points to an image of a howling wolf. If you caught the Nike #KobeSystem – Level 3: Perception video, you’d know that the answer is “The System”. The wolf, recognized as the fearless predator of the forest, plays an integral role in creating the Nike Zoom Kobe VII, forging a rock-solid system alongside the Black Mamba snake and the Great White Shark. In this exclusive, detailed look at the Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Wolf’, we see that the colorway matches the persona of the wolf – understated, but not to be overlooked. This upcoming March 2012 release relies on the ‘Attack Fast’ insole, but like all the Kobe VII releases, it can adapt to the ‘Attack Strong’ set-up by switching out to the Supreme insole.

Wolf Grey/Total Orange-Cool Grey-Black-White
how about a pig? or maybe a giraffe? nike's been comparing players to "animal personas" and its getting retarted.... btw nothing against this shoe.. the shoe looks nice. i wish nike have multiple designers that tink like tinker
So Eric Avar is Chump change now?? At least Eric focuses on the Overall performance of a shoe, not just how it looks (Tinker), not to mention the tech he brought to shoes (Outrigger). Tinker may have made some classics, but in my opinion, he went with looks before performance. Eric Merged the two. Talk what you know.
we're on the same page... u missed my point in some ways. i didnt say eric's a chump. i COMPLETELY understand the OVERALL performance of the shoe releases nowadays. u didnt read that i said "the shoe looks nice" what i said was they're comparing players to animals and they're translating that design into the shoes itself. IF I MAY ADD, they need to do a better job of thinking other creative inspirations and not just the animals itself. tinker had his own imaginations to begin with. eric has too (zoom generation is one of em and he was the "lead design" second to tinker) I talk what i know and you need to do a better job of thinking first before replying my friend.
