This month, April, Nike is set to release the Kobe A.D. NXT which features a unique lacing style. The shoe is a continuation of the basketball legend’s sneaker lineage and was designed by Kobe Bryant himself, working alongside his longtime collaborator Eric Avar. Avar is also a senior designer at Nike.
A Distinct Design
The Nike Kobe AD NXT comes dressed in three color schemes. Buyers can choose between volt, black and white color schemes. The sneaker’s unconventional lacing system mimics a clam shell. The shoe has an elegant Flyknit design whose circular pattern symbolizes a lotus flower. The design represents rebirth, which is perfect for the shoe since it is an updated version of the previous Nike Kobe AD silhouette.
Some of the sneaker’s outstanding features include a luxurious cushioning and excellent traction that makes movement pleasantly effortless during play. The model has a tasteful shroud overlay with a drawcord lacing system. The shoe’s attractive lacing system has an additional lace-lock structure for maximum containment during movement. Sneaker lovers will also appreciate the drop-in insole that comes with Zoom Air bag to enhance flexibility. On the shoe’s toggle is Kobe’s distinctive logo, while the Swoosh logo sits atop the Zoom Air sole.
For a shoe so unique in design, there are only two ways to react to it. In Nike product manager’s words, once you see the shoe, “You either love it, or you hate it.” But sneaker heads who appreciate a good shoe will fall in love with this elegant product.
Nike is set to release the Nike Kobe Ad NXT Volt on April 1. This will be a limited release confined to North America outlets. A global release of the shoe will follow on April 3rd, 2017.
Nike Kobe Ad NXT Volt will be available at select Nike retail stores at a debut price of $200 USD. As compared with other new releases, the Nike Kobe Ad Next Volt’s price tag is a bit heftier. With its gorgeous looks, however, the price is definitely worth it.
So, judging from the photos of this new release, what do you think about its overall design. Do you think that it will catch the fancy of a lot of sneaker lovers out there? Do you think the price is just right? In any case, let us know what is on your mind.
