Kobe Bryant’s got a real treat waiting for us this Christmas – the Nike Zoom Kobe VII Supreme in this vicious new colorway dubbed the ‘Cheetah’. Kobe has mentioned an affinity for the predatory spirit of alpha hunters like the cheetah, great white shark, and of course, the black mamba snake, and to kick off the running theme of the Kobe VII, the ‘Cheetah’ will officially hit stores on Christmas Day. Featuring a sick running cheetah icon on the heels, the Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Christmas’/'Cheetah’ will surely capture our vision during Christmas Day tip-off. We’ve got a detailed look at one of the most colorful Zoom Kobe releases in history, so check out the gallery courtesy o cee82 of NT below and let us know what you think.

Nike Basketball broke the red and green mold with last year’s Christmas Day Collection that featured the LeBron 8 V.2, Zoom KD III and Zoom Kobe VI in a ‘Signal Your Color’ theme. Each shoe had its own inspiration, yet they came together to form something like a stoplight, but this time around the big three sigs each go their own way at the fork in the road. The Nike LeBron 9 stays with the seasonal theme with its red upper adding white accents and green laces, and even the Zoom KD IV can be seen as somewhat traditional with its ornamental Metallic Bronze upper adding red laces. And while there are also red laces and (neon) green accents on the Zoom Kobe VII Supreme, that shoe’s ‘Cheetah’ colorway takes it even further than last year’s ‘Grinch’, and is easily the most inventive and indirectly Christmas-y of the bunch. Which of these three do you like best? Let us know when you click through for more images, and stick with Sneaker News for updates on these December 25th releases (that’s right, more presents on Christmas!). via 23penny1
