The Nike Zoom Kobe VII Elite may be fortified in advanced materials like carbon fiber and Pro Combat padding, but at the heart of the Kobe VII Elite lies the predatory spirit that has served as the inspiration behind the Kobe VII design. The last of the ‘predator pack’ of Kobe VIIs, the ‘Wolf’ features a Wolf Grey upper with Total Orange accents on the Swoosh and logo with a black midsole, and of course the Howling Wolf emblem on the heel. Before the Kobe officially graduates to Poison Dart Frog and Elite beginning in May, don’t miss out on the last of the Predator Pack by visiting your local Nike Basketball retailer tomorrow or by copping one now from sneakerwise6 on eBay.
Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Wolf’
Wolf Grey/Total Orange-Cool Grey-Black-White
I tried to play ball in some low tops once, when I was done my ankles looked like grapefruits. These don't look half bad for strretwear though
These shoes are very well underrated. hot shoe I must say and that's just IMO on the subject of the matter for all you hating mofos. anyways I really wish that all the hyped up releases that came out so far this year was like this.. still running a full size at the nikestore, 2 and a half hours into it after its release online tonight. oh well... just another wishful thought from a sneakerhead
A lot brother...a lot. It's only March and they've released more than 10. Let's check it out. I'm not including PEs, IDs and Supreme variations on the list: RELEASED: 1. Cheetah 2. Del Sol 3. ASG-Galaxy 4. BHM 5. Black/Wolf Grey 6. Black/Tour Yellow 7. Concord 8. Shark 9. Invisibility Cloak 10. Duke 11. White/Del Sol UPCOMING RELEASES: 12. YOTD 13. Wolf 14. Volt 15. Elite Black Gold-Away 16. Elite White Gold-Home 17. Lower Merion Aces 18. Poison Dart Frog-Easter Edition 19. Poison Dart Frog-Lakers Edition 20. Poison Dart Frog-Red/Blue/Black 21. Orange/Black The rate it is going so far, it might match or even surpass the Kobe 6 releases. However, it's sales won't probably be like the well patronized 6s. At the very least, the 7s will fill up Nike outlet stores nationwide. Perhaps Nike have noticed significant drop in sales during the first two months compared last year with the 6s. The drastic change in the overall design and horizontal streak lines made it less appealing to majority consumers. It wasn't surprising to me at all when they launched the 7 Elite Edition showing the snake skin - reverting back to the 6s authentic 'Mamba look' to recapture it's lost appeal. I predict 7s will release at least 40 varieties this year, 50 max! That should be a season record for a sneaker release. Even KD IVs are releasing a lot and it is already smoking the competition in this early going due to it's superior design and much improved CWs. So, if you're not digging the 7s, you still have over 9 months of waiting for the Kobe 8s to come.
