Kobe Bryant debuted his latest Lakers-inspired shoe, the Nike Zoom Kobe VII “Poison Dart Frog – Lakers” last night on the court during a 107-104 loss to the Houston Rockets.

The Lakers blew a double-digit lead and struggled on defense.  One wonders if the shoes are to blame, or if it was the notable absence of Derek Fisher, who was traded to the Rockets last week for Jordan Hill.  Fisher has since accepted a buyout from the Rockets and is reportedly looking to sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Dart Frog pack includes two other colorways, Red/Blue and Candy Mint (also part of the Easter Pack).

The Nike Zoom Kobe VII “Poison Dart Frog – Lakers” drops 05/19/2012 for $140.00 USD.
