While the Nike LeBron 9 has been creating so much buzz recently, the Nike Zoom Kobe 7 will eventually set the sneaker world on fire again with Nike’s newest minimalist technology for the future Hall of Famer, Kobe Bryant. It has been awhile since we updated you guys with leaked images of the Nike Zoom Kobe 7, but now we have a better complete first look of the model. Each year Kobe’s newest signature sneaker differs slightly from the previous. Staying with the preferred low top, the Nike Zoom Kobe 7 will take on an appearance very similar to the Nike Zoom Kobe 6 without the reptilian scales on top of the flywire/mesh. Noticeable differences include a newly sculpted external heel counter. Each year Nike makes the heel counter smaller and smaller to cut down on unnecessary weight. Another major detail is the exaggerated outriggers along the midsole. The final and most innovation addition to the Nike Zoom Kobe 7 is the removable ankle sleeve strap system and possibly an additional set of removable insoles. Stay tuned for more updates because this is just the beginning. The Nike Zoom Kobe 7 will be breaking barriers again in the athletic footwear industry.
