Kobe Bryant’s reptilian persona of the ‘Black Mamba’ is about to get paired with one of the most dangerous amphibians in the world – the Poison Dart Frog. Originally previewed back in December when Kobe sat down with designer Eric Avar, the Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Poison Dart Frog’ features a Black/Mint Candy upper that mimics the poisonous frog’s aposematic patterns, which the frog uses to warn potential predators to back off. This Kobe release is also recognized as this year’s Easter Holiday commemorative release, as the release will fall on April 6th, two days before the Easter Sunday holiday. There are indeed two more colorways of the ‘Poison Dart Frog’ Pack in a Court Purple as well as a Red/Blue colorway arriving in the months following this release, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates and let us now what you think about the Poison Dart Frog concept! via art3year
Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Poison Dart Frog’
Someone needs to do their research before they give these shoes their names. These have nothing to do with the Poison Dart Frog.
Can't wait to see the other models..and this one in better lighting. lol you can't even tell that the color is mint in these pictures
Damn it!...KOBE 7s have been soo consistent all along. All releases are crap, garbage, FUgly and way too easy pass. This is the year of Kobe sneakers designed by morons.
Oh I'm going to be killing them this year on the aau circuit this summer, with these. # water tower swagg gang # findlay prep swagging
These Kobe's this year are getting dumber and dumber. I wouldn't have worn this crap when I was 8 years old.
I swear if I see anyone wearing these with some black & white military print cargos, I'm going upside their head.. Lol
If they look as good in person as they do in that first pic then these will be my first Kobe VII but if they look like that 2nd pic I'll still be regretting passing on the All Star version.
sorry im a big fan of the kobe 7 but these just look like the black ones with bleach poured on em lol
Yeah, these will get picked up. Missed the Cloaks because I was too busy buyin those damn cements.. These are coming home with tha boi.
you are the one that needs to do some research. Dendrobates auratus, look that up, it's a type of poison dart frog that has the same color and pattern as these kobes.
I know you were being funny, but I believe so. frog, shark, cheetah, and wolf. I know they're were 4 Kobe animals to come out. I just don't remember if 'frog' was one of them.
