Even though the eternal basketball champ Kobe Bryant hasn’t officially been on the court in over two years, his presence is still felt enough for Nike to give him another signature shoe. Hence, we now have the brand new Kobe A.D. silhouette.



Arriving here in a familiar purple hue — a clear nod to his days as a lifelong L.A. Lakers leader — the A.D. features an innovative Flywire upper with an added synthetic top layer. The slip-on construction adds for easy access as well, in addition to Lunarlon foam for cushioning, engineered tread, and black and yellow detailing to complete the look that really lets us know this is a Black Mamba exclusive. Go ‘head, G.O.A.T!

No word yet on when this Nike Kobe A.D. colorway — let’s call it “Exodus Purple” for now — is set to drop, but the OG “Sail” colorway is expected for Kobe Day (August 24). Check out a few more pics while we wait on the official release date info:
