Nike Zoom Kobe V Here is Kobe Bryant's fifth signature sneaker from Nike, the Nike Zoom Kobe V. They are his lowest and lightest signature sneaker to date. In fact, the Nike Zoom Kobe V is currently the lightest basketball sneaker on the market. And, it's also one of the most durable. They feature a sculpted heel counter that keeps your feet sliding, an enhanced outrigger that provides superior stability, heat-bonded overlays, and Zoom Air in the heel and forefoot for cushioning. Sleek soccer cleats were the inspiration for the Zoom Kobe V design. And, Nike reinforced key sections to ensure maximum support in all the right places while on the hardwood.
