While Kevin Durant’s entry into the ‘Year of the Dragon’ collection opts for a watery look, Kobe’s pair picks up a particularly fiery palette more in tune with what you might expect for a dragon-themed sneaker. The burning red and yellow combo on the upper paired with the reptilian green that pours into the lining really nails the inspiration, of course the dragon emblem below the heel clip doesn’t hurt either. The Nike Zoom Kobe VII offerings have been surprisingly sparse since its launch, so we’re sure plenty of heads are eager to get their hands on this pair.

Nike Basketball ain’t playin’ when it comes to packaging their unique releases kicks in special edition boxes. Starting with the limited Nike LeBron 9 ‘China’ box that dropped a few months back to the KD IV ‘Nerf’ that transformed into a working basketball hoop, the creative minds behind these structural works of art have made it difficult for consumers to decide whether its the shoes or the box that deserves all the praise. We recently showed you detailed shots of the special box for the Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Year Of The Dragon’, and these new images have given us yet another look at what might be the best Kobe box ever erected. Of course, there will be some competition, like the Kobe V ‘Humidor Box’ for the ’5 Rings’ release, or even the wooden box done by Premium Goods 3.5 years ago. Continue reading for another look and let us know if this is the coolest box you’ve ever seen! via Kenlu.

On Monday Sneaker News gave you a detailed viewing of the Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Year Of The Dragon’, part of the commemorative capsule of Nike Basketball, Sportswear, and Air Jordan footwear celebrating this year’s Chinese Zodiac. The colorway combines vibrant tones of Action Red and Lush Teal with the piercing Electrolime adding just the right amount of spice for a perfect recipe for a must-have sneaker, and of course, the KobeSystem features two separate insoles, giving the shoe double the wow factor. The Attack Strong insole features the Lush Teal ankle-sleeve, but peep the Attack Fast, which uses Team Red on the tongue. When will Kobe rock these on the NBA court? We’ll throw you an NBA Feet feature when that goes down, but in the meantime, check out these new snapshots and grab this pair ahead of the release schedule from noel_26 on eBay.

Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Year Of The Dragon’ Special Packaging

January 17th, 2012 by | 18 comments

nike zoom kobe vii year of the dragon box 1 Nike Zoom Kobe VII Year Of The Dragon Special Packaging

The Nike/Jordan Year Of The Dragon releases have taken the ‘special edition’ box to the next level. A three-tiered box, a transparent dragon-detailed sleeve, a fold-up case – all gorgeous and magnificent in their own respect right but tame compared to the special packaging seen here – the Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Year Of The Dragon’. The box itself is in the shape of the dragon’s head, but inside it is the Nike Zoom Kobe VII with a special compartment for the secondary cushioning unit. You will certainly need to Attack Fast and Strong to get your hands one on of these limited-edition boxes, because if last year’s Nike Air Force 1 ‘Year Of The Rabbit’ is any indication, the special packaging is likely to be limited. A solid release date has yet to be set, but you can count on the entire collection dropping very soon as the Chinese New Year begins this Monday, January 23rd. We’ve got additional images of the special packaging for the Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Year Of The Dragon’ below, so take a thorough look and let us know what you think. via malambert.

What does ‘Year Of The Dragon’ signify for Kobe Bryant? A return to greatness? Recapturing the league MVP award? A sixth NBA title? Kobe Bryant’s current points-per-game average is the highest it’s been since he dropped 35+ in the 2006 season, proving to the world that he’s still at the top of his game. He’s getting to the line more, grabbing more rebounds, dishing out more dimes – Kobe, at 33, is as good as Kobe at 28, and if things turn out the way he expects them to, 2012, the Year Of The Dragon, will be regarded as one of his greatest seasons of his sixteen-season career. Releasing soon is the Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Year Of The Dragon’, which features a fierce dragon logo on the heel paired with a mystical colorway of red, green, yellow, and while; this detailed set of images provides even more of a thorough look, so if you’re looking for a visual treat, check out the gallery below and let us know if this is the best Year Of The Dragon release of 2012. via US10.
