Kobe Bryant Shoes for the 2008-09 NBA Season: Nike Zoom Kobe IV (4)
Following the immense success of the other shoe promoted by Kobe Bryant for the Olympic games, the revolutionary Hyperdunk, Nike will launch on January 17, 2009 the fourth edition of the the Zoom Kobe line which features a beautiful design (maybe the best of the line so far) and promises to be another hit.
It doesn't look like just a typical basketball sneaker. The Los Angeles Lakers colorway (black purple, yellow, grey) features a translucent midsole and a black reptile print on the toe box and heel. The tongues of the shoes from this edition have golden words imprinted reading “Carpe Diem” -- ’seize the day’ in Latin. There are more colorways that are expected to drop later in 2009.
Before the release of this shoes Kobe played some NBA games with an Hyperdunk/Zoom Kobe 4 hybrid.
