For sneaker connoisseurs and ‘Kobe X’ collectors here’s the product description:

The Kobe X Elite Men’s Basketball Shoe features the latest Nike Flyknit construction for strength, breathability and support, plus flexible cushioning designed to win championships.

Strong, Lightweight Support:

The virtually seamless, formfitting Flyknit upper is woven more openly in areas that need greater breathability and tighter in areas that demand more strength and support. A new transparent yarn gives it a stronger, breathable, mesh-like texture and allows a look inside the shoe.

Flexible Cushioning:

Lunarlon cushioning delivers soft yet responsive shock absorption. It features new multidirectional flex grooves that allow your toes to spread naturally for a more powerful first step.

Ultra Responsiveness:

A visible Nike Zoom unit in the heel provides responsive, low-profile cushioning from tip-off to final buzzer.

More Benefits:

Flywire cables for lockdown and an adaptive fit. Translucent rubber outsole for multidirectional traction on a variety of surfaces. Signature sheath logo and mamba-inspired pattern at the tongue top.
