Nike Zoom Kobe VII 7 Elite Away Black Metallic Gold 511371-001 (1)

words // Brandon Richard

This sleek, black-based colorway of the Nike Zoom Kobe VII Elite will be the footwear choice of the "Masked Mamba" on the road during the NBA postseason. Making a return on the shoe's upper is the polyurethane snake scale texture first implemented on last year's Kobe VI, supported by a carbon fiber external counter on the heel. Metallic Gold works the laces and various branding elements, while touches of dark grey and a solid black rubber outsole finish off the look below.

The 'Away' Nike Zoom Kobe VII Elite will be available at Nike retailers on Friday, April 20.
