The shoe, according to the brand, continues the Kobe franchise’s legacy of lightweight, low-profile on-court footwear.

The Kobe A.D. features a Zoom Air unit in the heel, Lunarlon foam in the midsole, and is completed with a minimal rubber outsole (boasting micro-tread traction). The aforementioned components combined, Nike explained, gives the shoe responsive, flexible cushioning and maximum court feel.

The model also features a breathable mesh upper with Dynamic Flywire for lock down tough enough for quick changes of direction.
