KOBE AD NXT FF “ BLUE HERO” with self lacing tech
Kobe Bryant’s impression on performance footwear is certainly lasting. His mark can be seen on the feet of the majority of Nike athletes on the court today, and that’s largely due to his innovation-centric relationship with the Swoosh. His latest iteration from the “retirement” AD era introduced some key tech such as React foam and the analog Fast-Fit lockdown system, quickly garnering favor from athletes who rely on finesse to stay ahead of their opponents, but now the brand’s color team is flexing its muscles with a new Vast Grey/Blue Hero styling that ushers in prints to the upper textile. While it’s a bit difficult to make out what the graphic is portraying, the color-combo – paired with the bright right FF strap – simply works.
