More Of The Zoom Kobe VII

Updated at 1:40 am Tues. with more pics.

by Chris O’Leary / @olearychris

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?

    A Camaro Decepticon would have been really cool. Though I guess we did see a Camaro Autobot, right? I think?

    It would have looked better if it were all black! I play in the Kobe VI’s and low cuts are good to play in. It’s all mentality! you can roll your ankle with a high or mid top!

    Thanks for getting the wide angle and the close up in those 2nd and 3rd shots, that really helps

  • Roebro

    reminds me of one of Scottie Pippen’s shoes

    nice to see a herring bone pattern again, the old heartbeat patterns were slippery IMHO

  • ab40
