UPDATE: It mightn't be the first basketball silhouette to feature a lace-covering shroud, but the Kobe A.D. NXT is by far one of the cleanest – and these new images from the Swoosh only further attest to that fact. The unique toggle-based compression system has been specially engineered to keep the foot locked down from all angles to eliminate slippage, while encapsulated Zoom Air cushioning provides responsive shock-absorbing comfort.
The Nike Kobe A.D. NXT ‘Wolf Grey’ will release on April 1 through NDC and Nike Basketball stockists.
The Kobe franchise is staying strong since its namesake's retirement in 2016, continuing the legacy with the new Nike Kobe A.D. NXT. The new design is rather different to its predecessors, with a Swoosh embedded in the midsole and a unique forefoot shroud fastening system. For the time being, we’ve only got a simple grey colourway – but we’re sure there’s more to come.
The Nike Kobe A.D. NXT ‘Wolf Grey’ is set to release in early April at select stockists, including Basket4Ballers.
