Kobe's newest sneaker won't be available until the day after Christmas, but that shouldn't stop you from adding them to your wish list. This year's edition, inspired in-part by the footwear worn during soccer matches, is even lower to the ground than last year's low-tops. They're also a full ounce lighter (checking in at 10.6 oz.), allowing Bryant to stop-and-go at the drop of a dime.

As if he needed any help on the court.

The Nike Zoom Kobe V will be available exclusively on nikeid.nike.com beginning December 26th. A wide-scale release will follow on January 1st.
