words_Brandon Richard Kobe has some lingering health and age issues that might keep him off the court at this summer's FIBA World Championship in Turkey. Dwyane Wade has already ruled himself out. LeBron James and Dwight Howard have wavered on their commitment. Is Kobe next? One has to wonder how the result of this year's NBA Finals will factor into that decision as well. Just in case Kobe decides to wear the red, white, and blue one more time, Nike has created a Team USA colorway of his Zoom Kobe V sneaker. The USA Kobe V features a white and obsidian upper. White leather works on the quarter panel, toe, and tongue, while obsidian fills in the midfoot, forefoot, and ankle. Sport red lines the inside and borders the Swoosh. White and obsidian get together for the midsole and outsole, which also consists of sport red sections. Completing the look is an obsidian and white speckled lace, somewhat reminiscent of the stars on the flag of the United States. If you take a look, this version differs a lot from the earlier version we showed you. Which one would you prefer? The USA Kobe V is set to hit stores in September. via Footlocker Unlocked
