Last week we reported about Nike’s new 10.6 ounce basketball shoe, the Air Zoom Kobe V. We also attended the launch event in Los Angeles and can now give you a little behind-the-scenes look at the event. Designers Eric Avar and Matt Nurse were in attendance at the LA Forum, alongside Kobe Bryant and announcer Kevin Frazier, to present the soccer-inspired basketball shoe. The event also included a Air Zoom Kobe V NIKEiD session at The Montalban Theater and a pick up game at Venice Beach with the Venice Basketball League.

Take a look at a selection of photos from the Nike Air Zoom Kobe V Launch Event after the jump.
