Nike Zoom Kobe VII – Newest Prototype Photos

Kobe 7 leaks continue.

If you’re a fan of Kobe Bryant’s signature shoe line, this week has been a good one for you. It started with a CounterKicks exclusive unveiling of the Nike Zoom Kobe VII on Sunday. Then, new daily drops including a herringbone traction pattern outsole and Zoom Air cushioning setup looks.

Now, we get a refreshed look at the Zoom Kobe VII in the clearest, sharpest images of the shoe yet. This particular prototype sample exhibits the modified herringbone outsole design in all black style. We see the left shoe sporting a snakeskin-patterned look, with photos of the right shoe demonstrating a more acute viewpoint of the 3D line segmented print as first leaked. The images also show comparison shots to the Zoom Kobe V and Zoom Kobe VI. Lined up side by side with previous models, the Kobe VII appears with a heightened collar and possibly a slightly raised heel area based on external observations of the thicker midsole.

Flip through the photos and judge for yourself. More Zoom Kobe VII news in development…

Loving that matrix-grid look (on the right main pic), seriously hoping they don’t change ‘em too much.

I also heard, they’ll have a Quick/Explosive insole, which is great, because Air Maxing these babies, would probably make this, Nike’s best bigs shoe too. Plus an ankle-brace/sleeve, they’re really loading these Kobe’s up(almost feels like the 90′s, pure luxury, and all the extra’s you can think of). 8)

ALRIGHT!! They are keeping the herringbone, like the kobe IV’s! I’m glad they are choosing performance over storytelling this time. AND they are adding some sort of ankle sleeve on it. If they made the outsole pattern more durable than the iv’s, like a slightly deeper herringbone pattern like the lebron soldier 3, this shoe would be more than perfect. the outsole would last longer for the sharpest of cuts, your ankle would be supported with that mobility wanted, and the fit i assume would be like a glove. Cant wait for these and cant stress it enough, KEEP THE HERRINGBONE!!!

Some of it reminds me of the Kobe 1, with the midsole wrap at the forefoot and some of the outsole. The height looks good. The outrigger looks slightly more agressive and by embedding the Zoom into the sockliner, they can probably save a bit of midsole height too.

Cant wait to see more pics!

Really seems to be a mix Kobe I and IV. The midsole/collar are very much like the IV and the traction/ankle look I-ish. Which is no problem to me as I loved both shoes. I hope they keep the black/white midsole colorway from the photos. That looks great to me.
