most of the performance bball shoes nowadays are not my cup of tea. they are looking really bulky or like some kind of spaceship. but when i first saw the kobe VII on feet they somehow caught my eye. their silhouette is just nice and they are really comfy! thanks to the nice guys at afew i got me a pair yesterday for a decent price! as you might recognize from some of my other posts i'm a sucker for red, white and blue (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGiYEWRzTik), so this c/w is just perfect.
