In addition to the ‘Cork’ LeBron 12, the Nike Kobe X Elite Low ‘Mambacurial’ is based on a past sneaker inspiration, specifically the Nike Kobe 8 ‘Mambacurial’. That shoe had a gradient effect going with pink slowly turning to purple, like the Mercurial boot with the same colorway that released at the time. Both Kobes are based on Bryant’s passion for soccer, having grown up overseas watching the matches.
This Kobe X is unique compared to others, mostly due to the extra swoosh on the inner toe, a signature on Nike’s futbol cleats.
