The Nike KB24 is a shoe that not a lot of sneaker enthusiasts are familiar with. With the passing of Kobe Bryant, it has been comforting to get some of his sneakers as a piece of memorabilia, even though some may not be as popular. There are a lot of performance elements of this shoe, some borrowed from previous main models, but these were made to be a lifestyle or casual shoe. These aren’t to be taken for granted.
Check out Chris’s review of the KB24 in the video above and article below.
