Along Kobe Bryant’s recent playoff run of 2010, we’ve also heard the Black Mamba’s name in conjunction with a number of Nike sneaker releases. Most notably as of late, are the Nike Zoom Kobe V “USA Basketball” and Aston Martin Pack. But just as people are already looking ahead to the NBA draft and free agency summer of 2010, so to can we now bring you a look into the sneaker future. Pictured here is a predominantly black with purple and white colorway of what is said to be a potential Nike Zoom Kobe VI sample. With premium leather on the upper, Kobe’s logo on the tongue, and his initials on the sneaker’s heel, what are your initial thoughts on this apparent Nike Zoom Kobe VI sample?

  1. doesnt look too bad for a sample…almost looks like the shoes is going back to the same comfort as the Zoom Kobe 1

  2. ok seriously nike is not showing any originality or creativity the 4s and 5s look really simlar and now the 6s look like a copy of them smh at nike


  3. Looks like a "Dream Season" line more so then the Kobe line…. rounder edges vs V's sharpness.

    Just thinking aloud.
