With the NBA Playoffs less than a week away, Nike is planning to release the ‘Playoff Pack’ colorway of the Nike Zoom Kobe V. The black base upper is accented by a special triangle pattern design that runs on the toe box in Varsity Purple and along both eyestays in Del Sol Yellow. Purple is also the color of choice on the heel and the tongue (trimmed with reptile print) which additionally has Kobe’s Sheath logo beaming in chrome. The finishing touches come in the form of a white Swoosh logo, bordered in yellow and a clear rubber outsole that further increases traction and grip.
We probably won’t see these kicks until Game 3 of the first round when the Lakers play their first post-season game on the road. Keep in mind also that we might not see these debuted at all because it’s really up to Kobe as to which colorway he wants to go to battle with. From what we’ve seen though, the Mamba is more than willing to deck his feet out in the latest game kicks that Nike prepares for him so I fully expect to see the Zoom Kobe V ‘Playoff Pack’ at some point in the playoffs.
This colorway of the Kobe V is set for release on April 17, 2010 for $130 at your local House of Hoops and Niketown so keep checking with them for updates!
