Nike — The Kobe System

Sneaker Shown: Nike Zoom Kobe VII

Year: 2011

The crux of "The Kobe System," and most basketball sneakers today, seems to be versatility and adaptation to different styles of play. The Kobe VII comes with two inserts — Attack Fast, which is made for lightweight responsiveness, and Attack Strong, which comes equipped with a full-length ankle cuff for support and power. As with survival in the wild, adaptation is the key to success on the court.
