Kobe X ‘5AM Flight’

Kobe X ‘5AM Flight’

Despite being leaked to the internet weeks in advance, this past weekend Nike officially unveiled the Kobe X.  The latest in Kobe Bryant’s signature series takes a minimalist approach to its design. With a less is more approach; the Kobe X utilizes a seamless textile upper which provides more durability and breathability.  The design uses the pattern and strength of sharkskin as a muse. With an advanced traction system, rocking the Kobe X gives you a feeling of what it might feel like to hoop in low profile racing tires. Nike states that the traction on the Kobe X grips the court in the same manner that racing tires would grip a track. The mid and outsoles are housed in a translucent casing that showcases the sneaker’s technology. The Kobe X combines Lunarlon, Zoom Air along with Nike-Free inspired siping that creates unprecedented comfort for the wearer. The 5AM Flight is the lead off color for the Kobe X. According to Nike the colorway is inspired by a 40 foot early morning dive that the Mamba took off a platform in August of 2013 that symbolized his return from Achilles surgery. The Kobe X ‘5AM Flight drops on 02/07/2015 and will retail for $180. A full family size run will also be available.

Kobe X GS (3.5Y – 7Y) $135
Kobe X PS (10.5c – 3Y) $85
Kobe X TD (2c-10c) $60
