The Nike Zoom Kobe VII Elite basketball shoe is designed for the playoffs. Next-generation Flywire upper offers lightweight support and lockdown. Cast polyurethane outer shell encompasses the Flywire to provide a lightweight, breathable, highly durable upper and a performance fit. Mesh placed under the cast urethane shell provides ventilation and features a unique sublimated graphic pattern that tells the predator story. Synthetic textile lining and a well cushioned collar give a plush, comfortable fit. 3-D heel clip made of injected TPU is molded closer to the midfoot for enhanced stability and a lock-down fit. Phylon™ midsole delivers lightweight cushioning and wraps higher on the foot for enhanced lateral stability. Exposed, glass reinforced, carbon shank plate brings torsional rigidity and midfoot support during quick cuts and jumps. Attack Fast drop-in midsole is made of compression-molded Phylon™ with Nike Zoom™ units in the heel and forefoot for a lightweight, responsive ride that’s built for speed. Attack Fast insert is surrounded by an engineered, power-stretch midfoot sensory cuff that offers stability and a sock-like fit. Sensory cuff is made of an engineered power-stretch material that is padded and perforated for enhanced comfort and ventilation. Solid rubber outsole features a triangular traction pattern for durability and excellent grip for multidirectional movement. Flex grooves allow the shoe to move naturally with your foot for enhanced articulation and flexibility. Strategically placed high-wrapping outrigger provides lateral stability for hard cuts.
