Nike Basketball is set to launch Kobe Bryant’s next signature shoe, which will be a completely new design from Black Mamba’s previous line.
Instead of keeping its traditional low-top build, this new design will come in a high cut design. Previewed during a Nike press event in China, the shoe features a semi-translucent mesh upper, large Swoosh branding on the side panels, Kobe logo on the tongue, an ankle strap atop an icy cup sole. But the main feature of the shoe is its FastFit lacing system that first debuted on the Air Jordan 33 last year.
No word yet on when the Nike Kobe AD NXT FastFit will release, but you can expect Nike athletes like DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Kuzma to wear the new sneaker during the upcoming season.
