For the final stretch run of basketball season, Nike will introduce the Elite Footwear and Apparel Pack, which includes elite versions of the Kobe VII, LeBron 9 and Hyperdunk 2011. Additionally, there will be t-shirts and shorts released to accompany each shoe. Alternate colorways will drop later on in the year.

Below is a look at the 'Away' Nike Zoom Kobe VII Elite, a shoe that blends the silhouette of the Kobe VII with the polyurethane scale-textured concept of the Kobe VI. Sitting atop full-length Zoom Air cushioning, the Elite VII also features a carbon fiber heel counter and customizable fit options. This particular pair sports a black upper, metallic gold branding and dark grey midsole.

The 'Away' Nike Kobe VII Elite will launch along with the other models on Friday, April 20. White-based 'Home' colorways will be released the following month.
