Kobe’s Pain is Potrayed in this New Colorway of the Nike Kobe X

Nike has started to get more creative with the Kobe X as their canvas.

The Nike Kobe X has played it safe when it comes to colorways so far, but that looks like it will change–starting with this colorway dubbed by the sneaker community as the Kobe X ‘Pain’. Kobe has been dealing with injuries for the past two years and the graphic upper, which makes the silhouette look like it went through a war itself, perfectly represents the grind that is the NBA. Some elements of this colorway may or may note be reflective, but the overall looks are quite fascinating and definitely something fresh and new.

The Nike Kobe X ‘Pain’ is rumored for a July 9 release date, but stay tuned to WearTesters.com if anything changes. Don’t forget to let us know what you think about this colorway in the comments section below.




  1. Kobe must be a painter and/or a Drywaller, cause it looks like he spilt sum all over these shoes? lol way2go Nike! but peeps will dig em I guess, ya could save your money and spill sum paint on the Kobe Xs ya already have tho? lol food for thought!

  2. I like the concept, but I’ll have to pass on this atrocity. I’m not a fan of the Kobe X at all, though. It’s just too plain of a shoe and this is a weak attempt at creativity.

  3. I would say it’s the Lakers Pain as well. At least they have the number 2 pick in this year’s draft. The Kobe X looks alright but, I’m not a fan of caged zoom.

  4. There are a pair of KB Mentalitys that have a similar colorway. They look like cracked , ancient, cement. I copped them and they look good and feel great. Might cop these too.

  5. So they decided to add a graphic upper to the ten but went with a design thats just not attractive at all. I’d like to see better designs before I cop. But I like the way it looks more than the “plain” kobe x.

  6. Sorry folks, off a 180 min coo lite session backed up with a 12pint of shak tap. These look like a garbage pale kid stepped On pile of aliminium pile of back melted pack of of crack pipe magic
