This Zoom Kobe V White/Obsidian/Sport Red hits and Foot Locker stores in September.


The patriotic colorway arrives just in time for the 2010 FIBA World Championships, played in Turkey at the end of August. You can probably expect to see some of the USA National team strapping these on since they hook-up perfectly to the USA jerseys. The white polka-dots on the navy laces are reminiscent of the Stars on the American flag.

The Zoom Kobe V first arrived in January of 2010, making a splash as the lightest lowest basketball shoe ever made. The shoe’s performance has spoken for itself over the year as it has been picked up by other NBA players and rode the feet of Kobe all the way to the NBA Finals (Lakers are in trouble now though, down 3-2). Kobe V releases in original colorways show no sign of slowing down, so check back for a few more set to arrive in the fall. And for more shots of this USA colorway, check the Gallery.
