Once again, Nike has raised the bar for progressive basketball shoes. The latest in the Kobe-line is the Kobe AD NXT FF, complete with a design that places emphasis on speed and agility. In line with his eagerness to enable players to get low on the courts without heavy compensation, the sneaker blends advanced technologies like Nike's FastFit, QuadFit, and REACT. The result is a new traction pattern that's been optimized for indoor courts.Coming with blacked-out uppers, the top of the sneaker features a textured velcro strap, complemented by Kobe-line insignia. The shoe is laceless and comes with a bright red strap at the forefoot that can be loosened up with the eject adjustment on the medial side. One distinctive element of the sneaker is its large translucent Swoosh, revealing a substantial portion of the inside technology. Other details like its mesh rear quarter and tonal heel panels round up the uppers. As a finishing note, the sneaker is given the essential REACT midsole, providing the wearer with a good balance of support and traction for fast breaks and sudden weight shifts.
