Sneaker News recently confirmed the black/snakeskin Kobe sample of interminable roots to be the Nike Zoom Kobe VI (6) but there’s no time to rest yet. Here’s a look at another upcoming Kobe shoe with equally nebulous origins; the upper is clearly all Kobe, with a purple and gold colorway, a snakeskin applique on the upper, and Kobe’s shozoku logo on the tongue and bottom heel. The midsole design is similar to the Air Force XXV Low, which featured a translucent bottom sole as well as midsole stitching, and the upper appears to be a combo between the Air Force XXV Low and the Nike Zoom Kobe V. In addition to the Purple/Gold colorway are four more familiar combos, like a Home-and-Away White and Black colorway with Purple trim, a ‘Draft Day‘ mix of White, Black, Aqua, and Purple, and another reptilian colorway mixing green with purple tones and a snake-skin applique. This take-down shoe of the Kobe line has a casual appeal but looks to be suitable for basketball as well, so check out the extra images after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for more updates. via NT.
