Nike Zoom Kobe Venomenon 6 Performance Review

Time flies, venomenon has been more series.
The Kobe Venomenon 5 burst onto the scene and garnered some notable attention for the unique heel pattern, excellent traction, plenty of Zoom Air, and a truly unique heel counter featuring a jagged print inspired by Kobe’s Sheath Logo.It has been got high reputation so far

And now Nike has brought back the Venomenon series with the Nike Kobe Venomenon 6.Utilizing what looks to be a mesh build and fuse welded overlays with light ice  blue ,that is amazing for summer ,especially for this summer  which more a lot of sneakers debuted such as curry 4 and so on .It was a view of this summer for the most popular colorway.

Compare with the Venomenon 5 which featured bottom-loaded Zoom units in both the forefoot and heel, and while that isn’t the ideal set up for many.Venomenon 6 with new and fresh colorway at least for summer . and  for the setting ,Venomenon 6 following up the 5 , and improve for some parts .Judging by the outsole, that set up is returning in the Venomenon 6.

The Venomenon 6 should be a solid addition to the small lineup of outdoor-friendly hoop shoes.



A heel Zoom Air unit can be seen through the outsole window but there is Zoom Air branding on the rubber toe area . because of the zoon air unit used , so  6 did its job well when playing . I can feel the bounce  when fall to down . but we hope it’ll also be in place at the forefoot.







TPU houses the rest of the midsole ,it  means the midsole is made up by Lunar or something other than Phylon.  that is a great news that Lunar used . And Phylon actually is snug. I can not feel tired even playing long time .Otherwise, caging the midsole would be a strange move. Synthetic leather is placed at the rear of the shoe which should house an internal heel counter.That is great  .

The heel of the shoe is placed on the top of Kobe’s logo. The rope is matched with the surround and protect materials from the bottom to the heel. It makes the shoes both beautiful and practical and brings full protection to the heel.

For traction,Traction looks to be based off of the Nike Kobe 6 and recent Kobe A.D. so the Venomenon 6 should be fairly solid on-court option but we’re left questioning its durability outdoors.


The mesh and fuse tooled pair looks like it could use a Swoosh on the side panel
