Date: February 21 2015

UPDATE: Best believe these go hard on the hardwood. We got comfortable in these from beyond the arc for a quick road test and they did not disappoint. The update traction sole make a positive difference and the bulbous outsole makes for a great landing when your done dropping bombs from 20 feet back. Dropping today at Foot Locker AU.

UPDATE: Official looks from the Swoosh just landed. You can nab these from Nike.com and select Nike accounts commencing February 21.

The Nike Kobe X shows up in its second iteration. Although it has been christened the 'Blackout', it's a Lakers purple hue that dominates the upper here, with a black Swoosh, tongue and heel playing a cameo role. The title is actually more of a metaphor – it's inspired by Kobe's incredibly intense workout routines where he feels the need to go so hard that he aims to black out. This release features the same material set as the 5AM Flight version. Nike has also mentioned that there are two more colorways of the Kobe X to be unveiled in the coming weeks. The Nike Kobe X 'Blackout' will drop at Nike basketball retailers on February 21.
