Nike Zoom Kobe V - "5 Rings" Quickstrike

You’re coming off back to back NBA Championships and not exactly outside of your prime. Yet, the experts have you falling short of a Three-Peat in favor of a team who has yet to suit up for a regular season game. We’ve always compared Kobe Bryant to Michael Jordan. If he really is anything like Michael, he’s out for blood this year. While Nike is excited about the prospect of LeBron’s potential future stranglehold on the Larry O’Brien trophy, they haven’t forgotten where their championship bread has been buttered for the last 10 years. That has been courtesy of Mr. Bryant, and the latest color way of the Zoom Kobe V is their way of saying “Thank You.”

Already dubbed the “5 Rings” Kobe V, the shoe sports a concord and gold upper, featuring the achievement graphic detailing we saw on the “Big Stage” releases. A gradient effect has been applied to the midsole, which sits above a translucent outsole to complete the look.

According to NikeTown LA, we should expect to see the “5 Rings” Kobe V available as a Quickstrike release on October 27th. Seller Californiadeal also has a few sizes available on eBay. Via Sole Collector
