Nike continues to release Kobe IV colorways that are inspired by memorable feats/events in Bryant’s life. Last month, Nike dropped the Kobe IV “Draft Day” in which many of you labeled it one of the better colorways seen on this sneaker. However, the Nike Zoom Kobe IV Olympic Gold Medal, which pays tribute to Team USA’s Gold Medal victory in 2008?s Beijing Olympic Games, has just hit select retailers, namely Kix-Files.
Similar to the Nike Zoom LeBron VI “United We Rise” and many other Olympic inspired sneakers, this particular shoe possesses the patriotic red, white and blue color scheme; however, it contains more gold-colored areas than any Olympic shoe we have seen. It features gold patent leather on the toe box and ankle area. In addition, this sneaker also possesses gold snakeskin around the toe area and heel panel. Is this one of the better Olympic tribute sneakers you have seen? Click here to view detailed photos.
