The Black Mamba’s next signature shoe with the Swoosh gets a rumored release date after surfacing in leaked images. Let’s take a look at the Nike Kobe AD NXT featuring FastFit technology.
After new images recently surfaced of Kobe Bryant’s next shoe, we have a much better look at what the shoes will have to offer, including its technology.
The tooling looks to be heavily recycled from previous Kobe signature models, specifically the Kobe 11. Not only that, but it’s likely we receive a drop-in midsole, also recycled from previous Kobe shoes, just like the 11s and NXT 360. No word has surfaced on whether the cushion will be Cushlon, REACT, Phylon, Zoom, or potentially even a blend of both.
The upper is translucent in this pair so you can really see the technology being used with FastFit. Upper wise in this sample it’s likely to be a synthetic fuse which looks very cheap, with a thin synthetic tongue. An additional ankle strap can be seen too.
Performance wise, these could end up being bangers, but what’s interesting is the nature of the material being used, since it appears to be an old school skin fuse. Keep it locked here for updates on the new laceless Nike Kobe AD NXT and let us know what you think below.
