The second has yet to arrive at retail and already we’re seeing the initial images from the third Venomenon release from the Nike Basketball Zoom Kobe series. The Nike Zoom Kobe Venomenon III feels somewhere between the Zoom Kobe 7 and other upcoming Swoosh hoop shoes like the Zoom Hyperfuse 2012 thanks to sporty, angular lines on the upper. The Venomenon III is pictured below in palettes ranging from traditional Lakers designs to a couple that offer new twists on recent favorites, and you can see all five upcoming colorways after the jump. via ak
i personally like the swoosh starting on the toe box, but a lot of people don't, so i wonder if nike will try to include that in the design for the Kobe 8
These look like a pair of Michael Chang tennis shoes that came out when I worked at footlocker in 94!!! I'm not feeling these at all!!! But there honestly have been very few Kobes that I have liked.
anyone else hear "something like a venomenom" *ll cool j voice* in their head when they say the name of the shoe and see them? no? just me?...my bad, I won't do that ever again
In some cases, the Nike Kobe summerline i.e. D.S. and the Venomenon series somewhat gives you a glimpse/preview for the next signature sneaker. In my opinion, if Nike comes out with better color blocking, it has potential.
