Last year’s Nike Basketball POP (Playoff Pack) was marked by its iconoclastic black-on-white design. The LeBron VII P.S. POP follows this theme, but the main thing it has in common with the Nike Zoom Kobe V POP pictured above is the addition of a triangular pattern on the upper. These tessellations give this new black ZK5 a distinct character, especially since this year’s Kobes have featured a wide array of textures and finishes on their overlays. Kevin Durant and the OKC Thunder are pretty impressive in their turnaround, but the Lakers are likely to dispatch them with ease, so stick with Sneaker News for more on Kobe Bryant’s playoff shoes.
