Here’s a shoe that, if the LA Lakers aren’t careful, will resemble Staples Center real soon. The Nike Zoom Kobe V is back, and this time it’s a blacked-out design that uses a little dark grey to accent an otherwise shadowy design. The Nike color code speaks of Varsity Purple, but the only place you’ll find that is on the outsole. It remains to be seen if Kobe rocks these during tonight’s crucial game 5 against OKC, but one thing is certain: these will hit Nike Basketball retailers like Foot Locker in July.
