, Kobe Bryant might be living the retirement life and doing things like debuting children's shows during NBA Countdown, but the work on his signature sneaker line has shown no signs of abating. As the 2017 NBA playoffs approach, Nike has unveiled photos of its latest venture with the Kobe line, what they're calling the KOBE A.D. NXT, a departure from the look of past Kobe models. The most visible change comes in the lacing. The shoe's Flyknit upper wraps over the lacing system in what looks like a flap over the top. The laces are essentially part of the shoe's upper instead of a separate component, which, according to a Nike press release, "draws the structure together, creating a fluid system with the drop-in insole (combining Cushlon with a Zoom Air bag, and siped in the forefoot for flexibility." Also, the shoe's lace lock design allows it to tighten to your foot based on your movements.New Air Jordan Shoes
, Kobe Bryant may be retired now, but his sneaker line with Nike continues to pump out new iterations and designs. Most recently, the Swoosh introduced to sneakerheads and fans of the Black Mamba, the latest and newest silhouette from Nike and Kobe dubbed as the KOBE A.D. NXT. Designed by Kobe in collaboration with long time Kobe-collaborator and Nike Senior designer, Eric Avar, the latest Nike x Kobe model conceptualizes and brings to life a rebirth of unconventional lacing system and entry mimicking a clam shell. The Flyknit design features a woven upper with circular patterns while another symbol of a lotus flower represents the rebirth of the Kobe sneakers in a traditional Hindu or Buddhist ideologies. The Nike Kobe A.D. NXT sneakers features a drop-in insole that integrates seamlessly with the outsole.Cheap Jordans 2017
, The Nike Kobe A.D. NXT is reshaped and largely a completely different shoe when compared to its big brother. Much like the woven shroud and lacing system overhaul, the outsole is completely reimagined with Nike Zoom. That said, this "Wolf Grey" iteration is perfect to introduce the shoe, as it allows the subtleties to expose themselves without much inspection. This detailed look and review was recorded prior to me playing in them, but you can still see my initial impression of the shoe along with a detailed look and sizing information. If you wanted updates on the shoes performance then you can follow me, along with our other testers, on Instagram. Most of us post updates throughout the wear-testing. The kicks also incorporate a few eccentric, Kobe-specific design elements, like the circular pattern in the Flyknit design, made to represent birth and derived from a lotus flower—a super Kobe Bryant thing to have in a shoe.New Jordans 2016
, The sleek and futuristic silhouette is back with a brand new color scheme today, keeping things tonal but opting for a bright build this time around. Today we get our first look at the "Volt" Kobe A.D. NXT. The unique and futuristic piece of footwear features a new lacing system that "functions to promote optimum containment during play by naturally adjusting to the athlete and providing a secure fit for each foot," while also rocking a unique Flyknit-constructed shroud. The kicks come constructed over top of a drop-in midsole that combines Cushlon with a Zoom Air bag. As for color, the tonal kicks feature an all "Volt" design that makes for quite a unique approach.
