Last September Sneaker News gave you a look at the Nike Zoom Kobe 24, an all-new Nike Kobe signature with a lifestyle focus. The low-cut shoe draws inspiration from a number of silhouettes of the past and present, most notably the revamped Air Force 25, the Air Royal, and the classic Nike Air Force 1. The Zoom Kobe 24 features molded leather uppers with a KB24 logo pressed onto the heel of the shoe. The midsole, which features a bold stitching a la the Air Force 1, features embedded Zoom Air cushioning and a modified outsole traction that would deem it basketball ready. Upper sectionals are also constructed of a snakeskin textured material as well, with three Kobe-specific colorways of White/Concord Purple, a Draft Day-esque White/Black/Orion Blue, and a slithery purple upper with a neon green lining and translucent outsole. A release in the states hasn’t been confirmed (and is unlikely), but check out these new detailed images below and we’ll give you more information as it develops. via Kenlu.
