    Nasty. Kobe shoes feel the best out of any other shoe on the market.

  • CaptanEO

    There are absolutely nothing special about these at all

  • JTaylor21

    These must be the Not MJ edition.

  • Riggs

    @blackphantom: then these are perfect.

  • ripslam

    FFS, the lowcuts are so played-out now. And these look the same as the 6′s.

  • Holiday

    who care’s, the sweep is complete and it great!!

  • Pannabis

    Kobe: “The funny thing is I still think we can win.”
    Reporter: “Kobe, they just won Game 4.”
    Kobe: “I still think we can do it.”

  • robb

    nobody liked the VI when they first appeared and now everybody loves them. The same thing’s gonna happen with the VII.

  • Kid Dynamite

  • irondan21

    Pre-Order now and get a limited edition broom and dust ban signed by Kobe himself!

  • spit hot fiyah

  • kidkhalsa

    I like his Adidas shoes way better. Low tops are played out.

  • Hambone

    Look like allover flywire expect them to be lighter than pau in the post

  • kit

    ugliest kobe shoes by far nex to his 2nd or third adidas shoes the one that looks like a car or a space ship!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    They look like some Payless sh*t.

    Reminds me of an older Generation Nike Zoom Kobe… but I can’t remember which one cause they’re all starting to look the same.

  • hoodsnake

    Looks like the Steve Kerr (5 rings) Edition

  • Fat Lever

    Maybe it’s the colorway, but the word that comes to mind for me is haggard.

  • MLK4Life

    He should go back to the regular mid cut shoes.

  • Silverselectjd

    Why do people get PO’d over these? If you don’t like them, shoot, if you don’t like the dude, don’t buy them, don’t read the article. People need to stop trying to be eThugs, it’s lame.

  • charles

    let’s give these a chance guys. they seem to have fixed the 6′s biggest concern which was the midsole. they added some kind of new material there so let’s see. I doubt these are gonna be the final product, there still needs to be a lot of testing and polishing, looks good so far. The Heel cup also changed, I don’t know if making it smaller for weight reduction would make it a better shoe but let’s see. I also think the landing on these things are better ’cause of the lockdown you will experience with the ankle locks.
