One more suspense this morning with another audacious claim. In an interview with Il Resto del Carlino, the often boastful Sabatini claimed that Kobe Bryant will be playing at least one game with Virtus Bologna to the tune of $2 million dollars per-game. While no one over at Bryant’s camp will confirm Sabatini’s statement or if Bryant will agree to the deal, one thing is for sure, the design of Black Mamba’s new signature, the Nike Zoom Kobe VII.
In what could be the most drastic change to this franchise yet, designers at Nike Basketball added a Neoprene-base inner sock with Lunarlon foam sole. This further the customization spectrum when it comes to performance and function, quite similar to those found on the Air Jordan 2011. Nike Flywire dominates the shell’s upper along with an extended heel counter. On its outsole, a new tread pattern to improve grip on the court plus a larger composite shank plate for the provision of independent dexterity between forefoot and rear. No official words on actual release date just yet, though MarqueeSole gotten a few early samples of it in stock.
