The Making Of The Nike Zoom Kobe Iv
Nike bounce back to 2008 and revisit one of their lowest lightweight basketball shoes - the Nike Zoom Kobe IV. The Black Mamba's signature sneaker changed the game by proving that you could create a high-performance, low-top basketball shoe without getting caught up by the craftiness of an ankle-breaking crossover. Emboldened by the breakthrough Nike Hyperdunk, Lead Designer Eric Avar and his team recognised that Nike's Flywire secure fit system could help deliver Kobe's hefty request for less.
