Kobe Bryant and the Lakers may have taken an unexpected early departure from the NBA Playoffs this year but his sixth signature model from Nike is still carrying momentum even weeks after the season is over. The lightest of Kobe Shoes, the Zoom Kobe VI features the unmistakeable snakeskin finish that has Kobe fans collecting all sorts of colorways of the Black Mamba’s sneakers.

The latest Nike Zoom Kobe VI to become available is the Metallic Silver and White colorway which is perfect for summer hoopin’. The Kobe VI weighs in at just a touch over 10 ounces thanks to its low-cut design and the use of lightweight Phylon and Zoom Air cushioning in the heel. The slim heel profile, Flywire technology, and contouring sockliner creates a fit that feels like its molded to your foot. What do you think of the latest colorway of the Nike Zoom Kobe VI?
