Nike’s Releasing More Kobe Bryant Signature Sneakers in 2017

Although NBA great Kobe Bryant hung up his sneakers after the 2015-16 season, Nike is still churning out performance signature basketball shoes in the name of the Mamba. The latest offering, the Nike Kobe A.D., will be released in a new look for the new year.

Australian sneaker retailer Kicks101 has provided an early look at a “Midnight Navy/Pure Platinum” Nike Kobe A.D. colorway, which is listed as “coming soon.” Reminiscent of the “Midnight Navy/Metallic Gold” colorway of the Kobe 11, this Nike Kobe A.D. features a dark navy blue upper, a metallic navy heel cup, and silver, red and white accents throughout.

These Kobes make use of a translucent midsole that allows some of the cushioning, such as the Zoom Air heel unit, to peek through. The Kobe A.D. is also cushioned with full-length Lunarlon foam, which has been “micro-tuned” to Bryant’s exact liking, according to Nike.

This early look at the “Midnight Navy/Pure Platinum” Kobe A.D. will have to suffice for now, as there is no confirmed release date for this pair. However, a “Black/Black” colorway of the Kobe A.D. is available now from nike.com for $160, and you can also customize your own design on NIKEiD for $205.
