Kobe Bryant’s First Post-Retirement Signature Shoe Has Been Revealed By Nike And I Want A Pair RIGHT NOW
Kobe Bryant may be retired now, but Nike knows that he still has some major pull when it comes to selling footwear.
That’s why they are all set to release another signature show called the Kobe A.D. on November 21st and I have to admit that I think I am going to have to get me a pair.
Here’s what Nike’s official statement has to say about these fine new kicks…
“Even though I am not on the court every day, there are people around the world who are helping to keep the ‘Mamba Mentality’ alive,” says Bryant. “I have seen it in basketball, football and with everyday individuals who are working to be better and are committed to being great.”
Kobe Bryant’s first post-retirement signature silhouette, the Nike Kobe A.D., continues a legacy of lightweight, low-profile on-court footwear. Combining a Zoom Air unit in the heel, Lunarlon foam in the midsole and a minimal rubber outsole (with micro-tread traction), the shoe provides responsive, flexible cushioning and maximum court feel. A breathable mesh upper with incorporated Dynamic Flywire, ensures lock down for quick changes of direction toward the basket or to cover an opponent.
Oh yeah, the price, right… these babies come with a suggested retail price of $160.
