Now that basketball is back, expect the ’11-12 sneakers to start rolling in. First up is the Kobe VII, as we were introduced to three new colorways this morning. Behold the Voltthe Sharkthe Wolf and a Duke PE. Kobe’s kicks retail at $140, and according to our sources at Modern Notoriety, the Shark and Wolf are part of an upcoming Nike Zoom Kobe VII “Predator Pack” to be released in 2012, which will include other “animal” elements like a Snake and a Cheetah. Clearly, The Black Mamba is celebrating the NBA’s return in style, and bringing some of the animal kingdom with him.
