From December 2008 up until now, we have seen almost every colorway you can think of on the Nike Zoom Kobe IV. It was obviously one of the most innovative sneakers ever produced from Nike Basketball, and it was well-received by both basketball players and non-basketball players (it was voted Best Signature Sneaker in our Kicks On Court Awards). However, there comes a point in time when the average sneaker enthusiasts wants to see something different. Therefore, Nike has answered our cries by confirming the upcoming Nike Zoom Kobe V sneaker.
On December 26th, 2009, Nike will unleash the first colorway of the Kobe V dubbed the “Chaos”. If you recall, Nike unveiled a “Chaos” colorway of the Kobe IV at the beginning of this year. This Kobe V possesses a multi-colored upper consisting of foil-like side panels, a lime-colored swoosh, red/black shoelaces, a purple patent leather toe area and a heel panel and toe area of the same color. It is also finished with a lime outsole and a white/red speckled midsole. As for the overall design, the Kobe V owns a similar, low-cut design of the Kobe IV, yet, its collar and heel panel section seems more fit for ankle support. Click here to view detailed photos.
