Kobe Bryant and Nike are set to release another Lifestyle sneaker, but it won’t be based of his current model or upcoming like what we traditionally see by way of name. The next model in the Kobe Bryant series is the Nike Zoom Kobe Icon.
Right off the bat you may notice the Zoom Kobe Icon’s resemblance to ‘The Glove’ or even ‘Flightposite’ due to it’s zipper used on the side which if zipped down, will expose the lacing system. The shroud will use a mesh material while the midsole is borrowed from the Kobe 6.
So far we get a look at two different colorways of the Nike Zoom Kobe Icon, one that will feature metallic gold and white while the second comes in black and white. It hasn’t been confirmed if this model is for off or on court use, however the overall look and build would suggest off-court. The initial rollout for the Kobe Icon will start on January 15th, 2016 but a retail price has yet to be determined. See more photos of both color schemes below.
