We’ve covered many entries in the Kobe VII Predator Pack in the past, but the latest colorway may be the slickest yet. Now that we’ve seen the snake, wolf and, yes, the poison dart frog, Nike has unleashed new details on the latest animal in its Predator Pack line—the Kobe VII Cheetah.
If you’re into animal print sneakers, but found the Christmas Kobe VII Cheetah or Poison Dart Frog a bit much, the new Cheetah may be more your style. Nike has moved away from the eye-aching neon of the Christmas design to a more subdued orange scheme that trails into a black spot pattern resembling the camouflage of the savannah and the colors of the cheetah. A little cheetah goes a long way. The Kobe VII Cheetah evokes the fast, powerful predator without being visible from space.
If you can’t decide which animal looks coolest on the court or on the streets, you have time to make up your mind. The latest Cheetah drops Aug. 25 for $140, just in time for all those back-to-school plans. What’s your favorite Kobe Predator Pack animal so far? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter. And stay tuned for more innovative twists on this classic throughout the year.
