The Nike Zoom Kobe V has been regarded by many sneakerheads and basketball enthusiasts as one of the best performance based sneakers of the year. This accolade has given the Nike Zoom Kobe VI some big shoes to fill and with release dates rapidly approaching, Nike has definitely stepped up the aesthetics portion of their game. In addition to creating one of the most eye-catching pairs of sneakers to hit the court this coming 2010-2011 NBA season, the Kobe VI will also be given a newly-designed box. From preliminary views, this new Kobe VI box will have a similar pattern embossed on the surface as seen on the actual shoe. This snake-print pattern relates to Kobe’s “Black Mamba” nickname. In addition to the print, the Kobe logo can also been seen faintly on the lid of the box.
