Nike Zoom Kobe VI

Like the previous two models, Kobe Bryant's sixth sneaker is lightweight and low-top. Nike designers were challenged to engineer a custom fit for all basketball players, and the solution was to build the shoe from the inside out. The shoe's design was based on a suggestion provided by Kobe, who wanted the shoe to provide a customized, fashion-design fit and feel. The Nike Zoom Kobe VI incorporates design cues inspired by Kobe's Black Mamba nickname. The texture on the upper and outsole is similar to the scales of a snake. Advanced Nike Flywire technology is built into the upper for support, but is subtler than in previous Nike basketball shoes. Kobe's 6th shoe also features a sockliner that molds to the shape of each player's foot. The sockliner extends higher up the ankle than most, cradling the foot for a better fit. The sockliner then works with the heel counter to provide a tighter, more supportive boost in the heel.



Nike Kobe VI Prelude

Leading up to the coming out party of the Nike Kobe 9, the brand in Beaverton is releasing a special edition of each of KB’s past Swoosh silhouettes. The Kobe VI Prelude pays homage to Los Angeles and its surf and skate culture, and celebrates the Black Mamba’s 2011 All-Star MVP award at the Staples Center. Bryant has always placed a premium on protecting his home floor, and did so during All-Star LA. The city is represented by a colorful artistic collage of stars, sharks and other sea wildlife, and a black mamba on the forefoot embodies the design’s inspiration

Right now, we presume these are for promotional use and will not see a formal release. With that said, would you cop if you could? Let us know in the comment section.
