Nike Zoom Kobe VI Black/Dark Grey Closer Look

words // Nick Engvall

It may not have been a good year to be a fan of Kobe on the court as injuries and an early exit from the NBA Playoffs fell short of expectations. It is however a good year to be a fan of Kobe shoes. The sixth signature model in the Black Mamba’s Nike line is one of the most popular yet, and continues to have plenty of color choices for everyone to choose from.

The latest Nike Zoom Kobe VI is a more traditional colorway featuring a predominately Black upper with Dark Grey accents. The Flywire infused snakeskin finish that has become the defining feature of the VI is in place, as well as the Kobe logo on the tongue, and his signature on the heel that make it apparent, whose shoe this is. A combination of Zoom Air and a phylon midsole helped it score well on our Kobe VI Performance Review, and it’s low-cut design makes it one of the lightest Nike basketball shoes available.
