The Nike Zoom Kobe VI is Kobe Bryant's signature basketball shoe for the 2010-2011 NBA season. Like the Zoom Kobe V, this model is still light and low, with Zoom Air cushioning. The 3-layer Flywire package is hidden, embedded in the synthetic upper which also has polyurethane islands to help with durability and artistically resemble snake skin. The Swoosh is painted over this reptilian texture. The sockliner is made from sculpted memory foam which molds to your foot after use. Traction on the outsole has moved away from the EKG-like waves, and has an organic feel (snake) as if you were looking at cells through a microscope.
