While the Lakers’ championship run faded to an abrupt black on Sunday, it was more than fitting that this all-black version of the Nike Zoom Kobe VII leaked at CounterKicks, which we relayed to you guys last night.

Later in the night, CK showed us a second version of the shoe with a white midsole and outsole.

Considering the timing of these pics with the Lakers’ inexplicable meltdown, the all-black everything version is the more appropriate of the two versions of the shoe we’ve seen so far, but the white midsole shows how the shoe is already starting to liven up. Considering the state of the Lakers right now, a version of the VII with question marks all over it would also work, but then you run the risk of looking like this guy.

With a little bit of color added into the ZKVII, what do you guys think of it?
