The past couple years, the Nike Kobe line up has been taking similar routes as many Nike signatures by offering step downs models or “Team” shoes as some may call it, that still offer performance and quality without the premium price tag. The Nike Zoom Kobe Venomenon is one of those shoes.
This upcoming season, as Kobe and the Lakers try and spring back from a Playoff slump in 2011, the Nike Zoom Venomenon II will make an appearance on the shelves in various colorways, along with the Nike Zoom Kobe VII set out for next year.
This model features the more traditional materials in a mesh and leather upper, outrigger on the phylon midsole, and a Zoom Air unit. Not much information is available regarding the NZKV II, but according to the catalog, it seems the Venomenon will be pushed more in the basketball market next year with more colorways.
