Kevin Durant went on a summer-league rampage, played a 2011version of Marty McFly, and rocked the Nike Zoom KD IV during pre-season workouts. LeBron James just debuted his LeBron 9 ‘Cannon’ while co-hosting a star-studded exhibition game. In comparison to his Nike Basketball compatriots, Kobe Bryant, the third head of the Nike Basketball trio, has remained relatively low-key and under-the-radar during the summer. Now, it’s time for the five-time world championship to steal some of the spotlight, as Nike prepares for the introduction of the seventh chapter of the Nike Kobe saga.
Kobe Bryant arrived at the Nike Campus wearing the Nike Zoom Kobe VII, a sneaker that has begun to make its rounds around the interwebs; already noted for its removable ankle lock-down sleeve, the Zoom Kobe VII continues the breakthrough ‘soccer shoe’ design utilizing a low-cut construction stabilized by ample Flywire cables and a revised heel-counter. We’re still waiting for more details and specs for the Zoom Kobe VII, so until then, enjoy this dope on-feet shot of Kobe and his seventh and stick with Sneaker News for more updates regarding the Nike Zoom Kobe VII. via heidiburgett/iamjeffreyjason.
