This Friday the Kobe X (10) Elite releases in stores. The color way dubbed “Grand Purple” sports a close resemblance to the LA signature team purple. If memory serves us right, we believe this tenth installment released while Kobe wasn't actively playing. Is this the first time this has happened during his career? Well, while the last thing this shoe seems to be lacking is ankle support and full foot stability on the court, I know most of us would like to see Kobe filling these shoes with his own two feet. The NBA, isn’t the same without the Mamba.
Kobe X Elite "Grand Purple"
|The KOBE X Elite features a Nike Flyknit upper construction with dynamic Flywire technology for superior strength, breathability and support. The shoe is the first Flyknit basketball shoe constructed with recycled polyester yarn – each pair is knit with the equivalent of five recycled plastic bottles. Designer Eric Avar used a high-cut silhouette for proprioception.|
