One of the major themes we’ve seen applied to the Nike Zoom Kobe VII is its ‘Predator Pack’, a set of kicks inspired by nature’s most efficient killers. We’ve seen a Christmas Cheetah, a Great White Shark and a Poison Dart Frog (not to mention the Dragon-ized Chinese New Year edition), so what about a chameleon — in this case, a chameleon car minus its green tones. There’s also been some rumblings that these are a ‘Jellyfish’ colorway, given their similarity to the earlier GS drop that carried the same basic palette and online nickname. But the way this model’s iridescent Flywire shell shifts from blue to purple puts it in a class unto itself, which is why word of an Asian exclusive release turns out to be true, plenty of US sneakerheads will be working to import a pair. Click through to see some shots from Nike Harajuku in Tokyo who’ll have these in stock tomorrow, and stick with Sneaker News in case they make it Stateside.

possibly the bet kobe 7, but still not that great compared to any of the lebron 9s and some of the kd 4s.
