Perhaps Nike’s referencing the fact that a 5-seed in the West will result in a road game-heavy playoff bracket for the Lakers this year with the gold-accented, otherwise blacked-out Nike Zoom Kobe VII Elites. The only colorway we’d seen to date, this ultra-premium postseason design must surely be complimented by something for home games and those familiar yellow jerseys. And just like clockwork, here’s the Zoom Kobe 7 Elite ‘Home’, another one of the still growing mass of white and/or black designs in early 2012. This pair retains the Away’s golden hits but opts for a different blocking pattern and begs several questions: Which one do you like best? Do you wish Nike Basketball would have included more purple in these designs? Discuss when you click through to have a closer look and stick with Sneaker News for the Zoom Kobe VII Elite updates, and look for a release on May 12th.
Nike Zoom Kobe VII Elite ‘Home’
White/Metallic Gold-Black-Neutral Grey
must cop for me!!! nuff said ..i will get roads in april and these in may!! i am sold..like pics on other site better thou!
They missed out something here...BIG TIME! Replace to black achilles support and midsole strip with PEARL WHITE & GOLD SPECKLES then that would be SURE HELL FIRE!!!
Those are hot but i hope those arent the laces that come with the shoe but these are still a deff cop. The kobe 6s & 7s are my favorite sneaker on & off the court.
Why can't people just buy them for its performance use, then using them for a weak sense of style? This goes for all shoes from foamposites to jordans.
NIKE STOLE MY IDEA!!!!!!! I DID THIS ON NIKE ID ON 2/19 AND NOW THIS SMH. THIS IS THE THIRD TIME NIKES DONE THIS TO ME AND IVE GOTTEN NOO RECONDITION
the black pair> what is up with the yellow lines, I thought my eyes were tripping for a second, not a good look.
This will sell. Nike designers are testing the waters now if the buying public has still the hots for the snake skin effect like the Kobe 6s. It appears Kobe 7s sales did not match the 6s because of the former's relatively inferior design no matter how attractive the colorways were. I hope the future Kobe 8s will revert back to an animal skin look alike. Truly speaking, Kobe 6 snake skin represents the Black Mamba - it's main endorser. I hope Nike realizes this.
i like. thought i was going blind but figured out its the yellow flywire causing the mild blurred vision... will these be limited release?
homes look nice!! would have went with a concord or gold heel cup but very nice indeed! road is a must..i might cop these as well!
I really feel this shoe but i dont know if i could wear it during all this concord hype. I may go after the aways but these are making it a hard decision
You are correct on the grounds that the shoes are ultimately made for the purpose of high performance. However, the form has to follow the function as well. You spend all that money for the shoes, why not make them look good too? As any chef would tell you, you eat with your eyes first.
People buy "retro" jordans and foams for style because they are not that good for basketball. Now kobe and lebrons are for basketball but why get those to play ball with when there is better basketball shoes for cheaper. Think!
What do you mean retro's and foams are not good for basketball? Wtf you are stupid, you must have never played in foams or retros's because those are the best shoes to ever play in.
retro's maybe, foams suck to play in, too heavy, they dont move with ur foot, high ankle sprains all day
