Nike Zoom Kobe V

While wearing the Kobe IV, the Black Mamba lead the Lakers to the NBA Title in 2008-2009, so trying to improve upon the Kobe IV would seem to be a daunting task, but of course designer Eric Avar would deliver a silhouette that some believe trumps it's predecessor. Kobe wanted the lightest, lowest basketball sneaker ever and Nike came through, releasing the V at an unheard-of 10.6 ounces the Kobe V gave Mr. Bryant what he wanted. Kobe came out of the gate in 2009-2010 wearing the sleek, sharp Zoom Kobe V with an upper made of a thin and lightweight skin that incorporates Flywire technology and encases the foot. The height of the shoe provides Kobe maximum mobility while giving his feet full range of motion without resistance. The Zoom Air™ continues to be a presence in the heel and forefoot and offers a well-cushioned, comfortable ride for Bryant on the court. A heartbeat-inspired outsole has a herringbone-like traction pattern that was strategically carved out to reduce weight.
