For his sixth signature sneaker, the Nike Zoom Kobe VI, Nike was heavily inspired by Kobe's nickname, the Black Mamba. This is showcased by the reptilian design on the upper, scale-like pattern on the outsole, and Nike even imprinted "VENOMENON" in the front of the midsole. The performance features were also tailored for Kobe's game with an extremely lightweight design that incorporates Flywire technology, Zoom Air in the heel and forefoot, and custom sock liners that conform to your feet.
Overall Rating for Nike Zoom Kobe VI (6)
Want style and light weight, grab some Kobe VI's
Paul, Perth, Australia
Purchased the Kobe VI's to replace a pair of Kobe V's for my son.
With teenagers, style is everything. But it seems the Kobe's also have good performance attributes.
Foot support/stability and grip are paramount.
Quote from my son - "The VI's offer more comfort and support over the older version !"
The V's proved popular, but over time developed tears in the outer wall - adjacent to the little toes.
With the change in construction and use of other finishings, it looks as if Nike have addressed this issue.
A 2nd pair of Kobe VI's are just about to ordered !
