Updates: Nike Basketball News – Nike Kobe News
Inspired by his Italian upbringing and soccer playing past, the Nike Zoom Kobe IV (4) will provide all-court versatility when the model releases in quarter one of ’09. From a technological front, the Nike Zoom Kobe IV incorporates the Swoosh’s inventive Flywire containment strands, an attempt at making a light, hyper-flexible product that hearkens back to the days when Bryant played in minimalist soccer cleats.
Nike Air Zoom Kobe IV (4) History
Underfoot, the shoe is distinguished by a prodigiously comfortable Zoom Air bag in the heel, and squishy Lunar Foam in the forefoot. Bryant’s signature is inscribed along the shoe’s heel support wing, and his favorite Latin phrase, “Carpe Diem,” makes an appearance as the tongue logo. The Nike Zoom Kobe 4 (IV) is slated to drop in black/black/varsity purple/medium grey (West Coast Edition), black/white/del sol yellow, and white/black/varsity purple color schemes beginning next January for $120.
