Kobe Bryant took the court this week with a new look that has earned him a new nickname – the Masked Mamba. After suffering a freak injury during the NBA All-Star Game (it was an accident, right Dwyane?), Kobe was forced to get his Rip Hamilton on and wear the clear Zorro mask for the game, but it seemed to bode well for Kobe and the Lakers as they easily handled the energetic Timberwolves by a margin of 19 points. Although it hasn’t been scientifically proven if the mask gave Kobe a boost in performance, we know for sure that this other piece of hardware – the Nike Zoom Kobe VII Elite – will send the Black Mamba to another level of play. Here we have another look at what we call the fully-loaded Kobe VII in the upcoming Black/Gold colorway; it captures that super sports-car with the aggressive midsole, exposed Zoom (like an exhaust), and the carbon-fiber laden heel counter (a spoiler) for a luxurious yet fear-inducing piece of footwear architecture. We’ve got more angles for you below so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates on this third edition of the Kobe VII, which is currently set for an April 20th release. via osneaker
If anyone is looking to purchase these I have both the KOBE VII ELITE HOMES AND AWAYS as well as the LEBRON 9 EASTERS. I sizes 10-12 in all of these. I get tons of limited shoes 1-6 months before release. All sneakers are 100% authentic or 500% money back! If your interested contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I want to see if the full length zoom air is actually full length zoom air.
I was disappointed to see the original Play Fast version with a skimpy piece of forefoot zoom air.
that was only like 4MM thick or something! I thought Kobe's in forefoot had 8-10MM in forefoot!
must cop..glad i passed on other cw..this is def pickup even with the $200 price tag...will get this as it is my bday weekend. want to see the home version. love the mamba print. wish they added concord hints to jazz it up but very dope..like the mamba print as shiny like the del sol vi and unlike the BHM but love true gold!!!
Probably the MOST DECENT Kobe 7 release but a $200 price tag is too steep although you're paying for a full length Zoom technology here. However, I am already broke with all these sick releases since the Christmas edition pack. SMH.
