Amidst all the fierce animal tie-ins and the bourgeois Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Elite’, Kobe’s latest signature sneaker still has room for a bit of story telling that hearkens back to his roots. We’re talking of course about the Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Lower Merion Aces’, a now requisite colorway that serves as a nod to the high school squad where the Black Mamba honed his skills. Check out the extra photos we have lurking after the jump and let us know if you’re feeling the laid back look. Also, be on the lookout for the Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Lower Merion Aces’ tomorrow, March 17th at your local Nike Basketball spot.

Having an ‘Ace up your sleeve’ denotes a bit of cheating or collusion, but Kobe, being the Ace up the sleeve of the mid-90′s Lower Merion H.S. basketball squad. was completely legal. Of course, he was levels above the rest, but that’s just the plane of existence Kobe seems to operate on. As the Masked Mamba continues on for another legitimate championship run and push for MVP, we get a look at his roots once more with the ‘Aces’ PE edition of the Nike Zoom Kobe VII; we first showed you the Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Lower Merion Aces’ in the wee hours of Monday morning, but this mid-day update brings you additional angles of what may be the cleanest Kobe VII yet. Release info? Stick with Sneaker News and you’ll find out soon enough. via hoopchina

Sneaker News has been busy keeping you up to date with exclusive looks at upcoming colorways of the Kobe VII, but we’d like to side-step the ‘Poison Dart Frog’ and ‘Elite’ versions and bring you back to the High School PE colorways that have been a staple of the Zoom Kobe for a few years. This first look at the Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Lower Merion Aces’ shoes a team red upper with grey/white detailing on the heel and the signature Ace of spades logo embedded onto the heel. No release date has been set just yet, so in the meantime, let us know how you think this primarily red-based colorway compares to last year’s grey-dominated PE of the ‘Aces’, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for more updates. via Kenlu
