To kick off the launch of the Nike Zoom Kobe VII “All-Star” AKA “Galaxy”, Kobe Bryant took some time away from the 2012 NBA All-Star Game festivities to talk to fans about his latest signature sneaker.

When asked about the design of the shoe, Kobe said the goal is for the shoe to “hug” your foot as opposed to simply being another lightweight basketball sneaker.

Since the All-Star dropped we’ve also had much hyped announcements for the Kobe VII “Poison Dart Frog” in Lakers colors and the ultra-premium Kobe VII Elite.

As always, we’ll keep you posted on any future updates and release info @kicksologists or on Facebook.
