While Nightwing2303 was pretty spot on in his Official Look/First Impressions of the upcoming Nike Kobe AD, we know many are still eager for confirmed tech specs. Well, Nike has finally given us something to work with, albeit a very small taste.
The upcoming Nike Kobe AD launch has surfaced on Nike SNKRS and with that come just a few tech specs, and its official name — simply another Kobe AD, not the Kobe AD Exodus. Although speculation of cushioning has run rampant (React? Full-length Zoom? A combination of the two?) here is what Nike has to say about the Nike Kobe AD releasing on August 24, aka Mamba Day:
“While they say there’s no ‘I’ in team, Kobe knows the ‘I’ is in victory. Designed for those that place winning over everything, the Kobe A.D. has a full-length mesh bootie that supports the ability to stay locked into a Mamba Mentality all game long. With a Zoom Air Unit that fuels explosiveness and an engineered micro-blade outsole pattern that enhances traction, the Kobe A.D. is made for writing a legacy.”
Here, there is no mention of React or a full-length Zoom Air unit. While both could be possibilities, it isn’t like Nike to miss the opportunity to boast some of its most well-received tech implementations. Our money is with Nightwing’s prediction of the line returning to forefoot Lunar partnered with that heel Zoom Air unit (which can just barely be seen if you look closely).
What are you thoughts now that Nike has released these minimal details on the sneaker? Be sure to drop a comment down below with your thoughts.
