If the Nike Air Max LeBron VII colourways are going the quantity route, then those of the Nike Zoom Kobe V are going the quality route. Here’s a pair, presumably a sample, of the Nike Zoom Kobe V in White, Varsity Royal, and Black, the proposed Duke Blue Devils colourway. While Kobe may have no affiliation with the Durham, NC school, there was a good chance that Kobe would’ve ended up there had he not entered the stacked ’96 draft. Well, that turned out to be the best decision he never made, right? This colourway is Blue Devils down to the horns, and uses the great crackled marble texture on the center Flywire panel, like that of the Chaos Zoom Kobe V. These are set to drop sometime in March, but if you need these now, get your mouse-pointer ready and grab these 9.5s from lacedheat on eBay.
