This Nike Kobe “Fade to Black” Collection celebrates Kobe’s farewell to his love for basketball as the Black Mamba will now enter a new chapter to his life, called post basketball era. This release of the Nike Kobe 7 comes dressed in a Blue Fox color scheme. One of the key features to the Kobe 7 was the insoles which included an “Attack Fast” and “Attack Strong” versions. The shoe also accompanied Kobe to London as he won a Gold medal at the 2012 Olympics. The Nike Kobe 7 FTB is part of the Nike Kobe FTB “Black Mamba” Pack that features limited edition styles, which slowly fade from White to Black as an appropriate metaphor heading into Kobe Bryant’s final game.
