Evolution is defined as a procession of change or growth over a period of time. Sometimes, evolution has the unpredictable tendency of leap-frogging a few steps, carrying out unforeseen advancements that tighten the boundaries of survival. One such leap can be traced back to the creation of the Nike Zoom Kobe V; it created new conventions of performance basketball design by adapting key details from the sport of international football (soccer), implementing the low-cut construction and a rigid heel counter that has been the standard for top-flight comfort in a sport that relies so heavily on speed and lightweight performance. The Kobe V was tailored directly to Kobe Bryant’s game, who relied on rapid cuts and electrifying bursts of speed on the hardwood; soon after, the low-cut basketball shoe then became less of an acquired taste and more of a mainstream fit, marking the Zoom Kobe V as one of the revolutionary basketball sneakers of all-time. It’s been just two years since the debut of the Kobe V, but the conventions of Nike Basketball are about to be shaken up once again.
With the Nike Zoom Kobe VII System Supreme, evolution has experienced another jump forward; by introducing interchangeable cushioning units never before seen in any other Nike Basketball sneaker in history, the Nike Zoom Kobe VII provides a truly tailor-made fit for basketball players of all types. The Attack Fast (Leopard) takes advantage of the low-cut, lightweight construction while utilizing the unparalleled Zoom Air on the forefoot and heel to keep the foot properly cushioned. The Attack Strong (Great White Shark) features the same cushioning foundation, but introduces a higher-cut ankle cuff engineered with padded power-stretch material that keeps the foot locked down for intense battles in the trenches. While designed to the specifics of Kobe Bryant, the Nike Zoom Kobe VII System Supreme truly allows any player of any style to maximize his or her performance at any coordinate on the hardwood; by essentially doubling its power with the multi-option cushioning, the Nike Zoom Kobe VII System Supreme has created a unique standard of performance basketball while leading the charge of a rising torrent of new-age designs. Get ready to lace up in one of the most game-changing sneakers ever created because Nike Zoom Kobe VII System Supreme will officially hit Nike Basketball retailers like Primitive tomorrow, or pick up a pair now on eBay.
