Nike Basketball’s Elite Series sets a new gold standard for the industry, applying the best materials and luxurious colorways to the latest generation of their world-beating performance machines. The Nike Zoom Kobe VII Elite might be the best of them all, because the moment you lay eyes upon this elegant white, black and gold design, you’re met with the realization that this could be the one that Kobe’s wearing when he matches Michael Jordan with six NBA Championship rings. That kind of winning pedigree paired with top-notch technology and dignified good looks has these arriving late next month with a $200 MSRP. Your challenge, now, is not in determining whether you’ll get a pair of Zoom Kobe 7 Elites, but rather, choosing if it’ll be the black ‘away’ edition or this ‘home’ pair you can see in greater detail after the jump (and what about the equally sick LeBron 9s and Hyperdunk 2011s?!). Let us know where these rank amongst their Elite brethren and stick with Sneaker News for updates on this April 28th release. via Taobao
Nike Zoom Kobe VII Elite ‘Home’
White/Metallic Gold-Black-Neutral Grey
200 dollar 'elite' and they cant even get the carbon fiber on the heel to line up with the midsole paint. C'MON MAN!
the only reason the snake scales are back on the kicks is because kobe didnt get no where last year so they just tossed some more 6's out there lol
Why is everyone complaining about the visible gold flywire? So you guys have never heard of or seen a albino python before? It was once the most expensive pet in the world. Even did a search on google and saw it said prices went as high as $40,000 for them. Finding that out has given me a greater appreciation for this colorway. Gotta tip your hats off to Nike on that one... Still not copping though lol
$150 I bet they didnt even cost $15.00 to make!! Thats including shipping from the sweat shop!! But the word Elite costs another $50 to 60 dollars. No thanks!!!!!
Premium?? since when did we have to start paying extra for what is promised. QUALITY. Crock of shit this is mate.
Thank u Nike fa givin out da unfinished, rough draft products in kobe, lebron & hyperdunks shoes Nov thru March & give out da REAL final version of da product now & up da price by 40%... Way to go on how u treat ur consumers.. real class act... (sarcastic smile)
That's was up they brought back the snake scales I'm getting this bad boys for sure rock one and stock the other pair
200 dollars my ass. Nike is baluing themselve too much smh. What happen in a day where aj xi used to cost 120 not 180 dollars?? And quality is getting worse. U just put a name elite and there u go. U raise price 60dollars more.
no one buy em for a month we must occupy nike lol 4real thou the price will go down just dnt buy em for like a month
I really don't like the flywire on these. I also think that every product Nike puts out should use premium quality and the best materials. It's a shame they are so greedy. And I already know these will sell out in all the colorways.
U cant tip ur hats to a bunch of greedy snakes that up.da price on all their products & use horrible quality... u shouldn have to pay more fa a shoe dat had already raisen in price since last yr. If u want more carbon fiber fa comfort & stability, then jus put sum jordan 12s on
Neither.. has a full zoom air unit... so fa 180 u get a supreme system wit all the different insole insert... Fa 200 u DONT get any inserts... Nike really knows how to fuuuuck over its consumers huh
It comes with only one insert and it's neither the Attack Fast or the Attack Strong because it is a full-length Zoom Air insert which is a first for this line
im hoping that will work but it aint gonna work. apparently there will be some ignorant fools who will buy this shit and there will definitely be resellers who buy this shit.
I'm with this cat. We all stick together and force these prices down. And it should start with the Yezzy2.
