The Nike Zoom Kobe VI is a performance basketball shoe inspired by the black mamba, Kobe Bryant. The design draws cues from this fearsome snake and incorporates key performance elements in a low-profile shoe that weighs just 10.6 ounces in a men’s US size 9.
Also featured at the event was the Nike Sportswear K.O.B.E True Colors collection whose designs depict an iconic athlete’s road to success, as a collection of staple outerwear and apparel, delivering the very best blends of form, function and personality. Kobe Bryant has one of the lightest shoes in the game. With education as the graphic foundation, this is a lesson in Kobe’s life and inspirations delivered differently. This collection is inspired by the battle for knowledge of self, challenging the status quo and celebrating those who destroyed barriers to get to a new space.
