Kobe and the Lakers might be down 0-2 after an embarrassing collapse last night in Oklahoma City, but that doesn’t mean his sneaker game is any weaker. Skip Bayless might be calling the Black Mamba the new “Garden Snake” but that doesn’t mean he’s any less potent when it comes to what’s on his feet. After first wearing these in Game 1 against the Thunder, Nike released new images of the Nike Zoom Kobe VII System iD “Playoffs” earlier this week.
We’ve seen all sorts of Kobe VIIs released this year, inspired by everything from cheetahs to poison dart dart frogs. Do you want to cook up something similar? You now can. Go design them at Nike iD and put your personalized stamp on these joints.
