Nike Zoom Kobe VII System Elite

A couple of the silhouettes from Nike Basketball’s latest range of signature sneakers are opting for a tiered setup in their release, topping out at the elite versions. Our first look at the Nike Zoom Kobe VII System Elite has just arrived, showing off the extra features that come with the heavier price tag ($200 this time around). On the back end the heel-clip has been upgraded to a stronger carbon fiber. The upper of the shoe is totally remixed as well, stripping the linear design and hearkening back a bit to the scaled setup of the previous iteration of the Nike Zoom Kobe. Then there’s the sole kit which features full length Zoom Air cushioning this time around. Even if the tech aspects don’t appeal to you, it’s pretty hard to deny the Nike Zoom Kobe VII System Elite thanks to the super sleek inaugural colorway, a black and gold affair that oozes regal flavor. Follow us after the jump for some detailed shots of the Nike Zoom Kobe VII System Elite, which is set to debut on April 20th, 2012. via marqueesole
