Nike Zoom Kobe VII

EXCLUSIVE: NIKE ZOOM KOBE VII

CounterKicks has exclusively obtained the first detailed photos of Kobe Bryant’s next signature shoe, the Nike Zoom Kobe VII.

The Zoom Kobe VII images show a continued evolution of the low cut line. A 3D print, line segmented design appears across a Skinwire/Flywire upper. ZKVII also features an extended outrigger, midfoot flex groove, carbon fiber shank plate, external TPU heel counter, heel crashpads, and Zoom Air cushioning.

Underfoot, the solid rubber outsole design advances aesthetically from the mamba snake inspired ornamentation of the previous Zoom Kobe VI. The new Zoom Kobe VII model exhibits a fractal geometric traction pattern and decoupled heel design.

In total, while this particular version of the Nike Zoom Kobe VII is an early prototype/development sample where continued refinements and changes will be made towards final production, it gives you the first multiple angle look at Kobe Bryant’s on-court game shoe for next season.

Over the course of the last several weeks, CounterKicks has obtained and developed the information on the Nike Zoom Kobe VII from one of our readers who contacted us (send us info: [email protected]) and provided the images seen here exclusively to CK. That tipster has since listed his Zoom Kobe VII prototype on eBay.

More info on the Nike Zoom Kobe VII coming to CounterKicks as it develops. Detailed photos below…

Wow. Just wow. Counterkicks indeed. Look at us…

Oh, and the shoes look pretty nice too. Continued evolution, exactly what I think a sig line should be.

Like Duke said, a great evolution to the shoe, as a sig should be.

Loving the new look(I’m still not sold on the look of the VI), especially the new mid-sole is FIRE!!!

In many forums I’ve seen, performance wise, the traction on the Kobe IV’s were the best hands down, I even borrowed thee shoe and It is Magnificent. Why not bring that out sole pattern back, or something very similar? On the kobe v and VI thats the complaint I hear about the most, and I believe that would make the shoe the best in the market and in performance. Hopefully my opinion is heard by the higher ups and they do something about it

i gotta give it to avar (i’m assuming this is his work), the shoe looks to have evolved from the VI, and at the same time, grown with kobe too. i mean, the shoe still has that clean 1-piece forefoot and midfoot upper, along with a prominent heel-counter, so the theme of minimalism is still there. at the same time, it also looks a little higher cut than the VI, with a thicker heel and midsole. this says to me that kobe’s attention has now shifted from low-cut soccer cleat to a little more comfort and stability since he’s probably transitioning to another style of play (similar to dunking jordan vs fadeaway jorday). i may be reading into something that’s not even there, but that’s what i get from the styling of the shoe. regardless, it looks clean, and i’m excited to see it shine in other colorways.

This is the coolest looking shoe that i have ever seen! They need to leave the collar like it is here instead of modifying it. Very sleek look, cant wait till these come out!!

Not a huge fan of that backside in general, plus it looks like the eyes of the Easter Island Head staring at you saying, “dum dum give me gum gum”

The shoe on the photo is just too dark to see. All black?! Can’t see any details on them. Hope there’s one that has actual colors on them. Like LBJ’s.
