The latest arrival from Kobe Bryant’s Nike Zoom Venomenon series is drawing comparisons to the forthcoming ‘University Gold’ Kobe 9 EM.

This shoe takes on black as its dominant color, with dark grey helping out on the lace fixture, eyelets, inner lining, heel counter and toebox detail. Hits of gold and crimson provide pop on the logos, laces, lower Flywire cables and outsole.

Tech wise, the Venomenon 4 brings Hyperfuse and Flywire together on the upper, supported by Zoom cushioning. For ballers who like to take their game outdoors, the outsole has an abrasion-resistant material with Blade pattern for enhanced traction.

You can pick up a pair of these Nike basketball shoes here for $120 this Saturday, March 29 at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.
