Ahead of its release this weekend, today welcomes an official unveiling of the Nike Zoom Kobe VII (7) “Prelude”. A member of the “Prelude Pack” this Nike Zoom Kobe VII (7) pays homage to Kobe’s gold medal win in London two years ago.
Launched originally in 2011, the Nike KOBE VII System maximized performance innovation with a customizable approach – giving athletes support and cushioning options.
Beyond performance benefits, the KOBE VII System tells a predator story that’s inspired by Kobe Bryant’s predator-like instinct on the court. Predator patterns come to life in the shoe’s outer shell as a “skin” simulating the look of three predator patterns mixed together – the Leopard, Great White Shark and Black Mamba.
The Kobe Prelude VII plays on cubist art and Bryant’s 2012 gold victory in London. The graphics, portrayed in a cubist style, have a dynamic composition that features the mamba, Bryant’s No. 10 worn in London, and additonal storytelling elements to form a mural look. On the heel, there is a laurel wreath around the number 10, again in a cubist styling.
