Not too many sneakerheads will be surprised to hear that the home and away 61 Points editions of the Zoom Kobe IV, worn by the Black Mamba during the NBA Finals, will be dropping at House of Hoops this summer. It was originally reported that these would not be released for retail, but after the big response, it had to be a no-brainer for Nike to give the people what they want. To the delight of many, the kicks will be released in both the white and black colorways, complete with gold scribbled text all over. The white “home” version will drop on Wednesday, July 22nd, with the black “away” kicks coming a couple weeks later on Wednesday, August 5th. As of now, it looks like House of Hoops may be the only place to get them, but we’ll be sure to let you know if that changes. Via FootLockerUnlocked.
