15. Nike Zoom Kobe VII "Cheetah" 

Year: 2011 

The VIIs shared a lot of the same features and ideas as the IVs - IVs but truly moved things forward for Kobe's brand with interchangeable cushioning and ankle heights a la Jordan 2012. And like the other models, these saw a Christmas Day launch via Kobe himself—this time on a pushed-back opening day. Nobody missed these.
