After a few months of colorway confusion, this Nike Zoom Kobe VII would later be known as the “Year of the Dragon”. The colorway is a bit different from the images we’ve been seeing and very different from the Blue / Orange YOTD themed sneakers from the actual pack. This Nike Zoom Kobe VII features a Red, Green, Yellow and White colorway with a Yellow Dragon on the Heel. Check out the official images after the jump!
Kobe Bryant appreciates Chinese culture, in particular Chinese Kung Fu. The quest for agility and speed has been integrated into his own athletic art. Drawing inspiration from Kobe’s Italian root and Kung Fu movies filmed in that country, the design team rendered NIKE KOBE VII SYSTEM SUPREME with the signature tri-color of Italy. NIKE KOBE VII SYSTEM SUPREME comes with a cushion printed with Kobe’s exclusive golden Logo, a statement of invincibility. The matrix design on the upper is a special code, spelling the message for Kobe. With his signature and an animated dragon pattern on the counter, this design is impeccable for the Chinese new year.
