Nike Kobe AD NXT 360 “Infrared”

While Kobe Bryant might be two years removed from his illustrious NBA career, his signature line of Nike footwear continues to live on as one of the most popular options among current players. That line’s newest addition, the Kobe AD NXT 360 is the second iteration to be given an AD monicker – alluding to the future hall-of-famer’s post-NBA career – and continues the Black Mamba’s long line of low-top offerings. Its next-gen Flyknit construction wraps the offering fully to give the sneaker a sock-like fit while its rugged outsole that comes dressed in orange here keeps its on-court durability in-tact. White makes up for the vast majority of its upper, while Bryant’s signature logo can be seen embroidered in red on the heel. Enjoy a detailed set of images below and mark your calendars for the June 14th release date of the Kobe AD NXT 360 in “Infrared”.

In addition to the grey pair with the neon green outsole, it appears that the Nike Kobe AD NXT 360 will be giving us a handful of bright iterations this Summer. Here we bring you official images of the Infrared colorway.

This Nike Kobe AD NXT 360 starts off with a white Flyknit all throughout the upper iridescent detailing on the Swoosh logos on the side panels and the Kobe shield branding on the tongues. Finishing details include red embroidered branding on the heels. grey heel counters, and orange/Infared translucent outsole.

Nike Kobe 1 Protro “Final Seconds”

The Nike Kobe 1 Protro returns this weekend in a couple of new colorways to celebrate Mamba Day (April 13th). Releasing as part of the Nike Basketball Art Of A Champion Collection will be the Nike Kobe 1 Protro Final Seconds.

This Lakers-inspired Kobe 1 Protro is inspired by Kobe Bryant’s miraculous Game 4 playoff performance against the Suns back in 2006. Down two points, Kobe’s wrong-footed, herky-jerky layup on a fast break sent the game to OT, where, down one, he saved the ball off a tip, drove right and drilled the game-winner with two defenders in his face as the buzzer sounded. The shoe features a White leather upper with Del Sol and Varsity Purple accents to complete the Lakers theme. Additional details include Kobe’s number “8” is stitched on the heels and a full-length Zoom Air cushioned sole.

The Nike Kobe 1 Protro Final Seconds honors Kobe Bryant’s 2006 Game 4 performance against the Phoenix Suns. It’s include in the Nike Champions Think 16 Collection that honors sixteen of the game’s greatest champions.Dressed in a White, Del Sol, and Varsity Purple color scheme.

Nike KD 11 “EYBL”

After numerous early looks at the shoe, the Nike KD 11 EYBL finally has a release date.This iteration of Kevin Durant’s 11th signature shoe with Nike was made for the Nike Elite Youth Basketball (EYBL) Tournament that takes place every year. It features shades of dark and light pink on the Flyknit upper along with Pure Platinum detailing on the toe, ankle, and heel for contrast. Volt accents along with a vibrant Pink React midsole complete the look as well as the signature Peach Jam logo near the heels.

Last week, we brought you a first look at the Nike KD 11 “EYBL” colorway to continue the Swoosh brand’s longstanding collection of dedications to the youth hoops organization. Dressed in a vibrant color scheme, the Nike KD 11 utilizes a recurring embroidered peach logo that is designed to honor the annual Peach Jam basketball tournament in Georgia. Hot Punch acts as the catalyst for this sneaker’s colorway, while Lime Blast and Pure Platinum provide supporting details that lend to a color scheme that is perfect for the middle of the Summer. The semi-translucency of the KD 11’s react cushioning sole unit acts as a window to another Hot Punch element to match the look of the rest of the sneaker. Enjoy an official set of images for this brand new “EYBL” offering and expect its arrival at Nike Basketball retailers on July 13th.

Nike KD 11 “Still KD”

The Nike KD 11 Still KD is debuting this month, and it’s one of the first colorways of Kevin Durant’s brand new 11th signature sneaker. The silhouette’s updated Flyknit upper and sock-like ankle collar features a mixture of white, black and grey hues for a Cookies & Cream-like theme. Other details include a reinforcing heel with branding, matching laces, a full-length Zoom Air cushioning and translucent React foam outsole to complete the design altogether.

Durant wanted a shoe that felt broken-in right out of the box, so head designer Leo Chang concocted a performance silhouette featuring a rubber cup sole that boasts a combination of Nike’s React and Zoom cushioning technologies, offering excellent responsiveness without sacrificing even a speck of comfort. The shoe’s Flyknit upper was constructed with a softer knit and a different collar than the two previous models, design tweaks that were inspired by last summer’s Nike Air Sock Racer-a shoe that Durant expressed his admiration for to Chang. The end result of the two’s collaborative process? A shoe that boasts the light-weight comfortable feel of a premium runner, while still offering all the rugged performance a player the caliber of the Slim Reaper needs to stay on top of his game.

Nike KD 11 “Paranoid”

Nike has just released another colorway of the all-new Nike KD 11 after dropping the EYBL/Peach Jam pair last week. Now they have given us the all-blue pair that is being dubbed the Paranoid colorway.

After winning back-to-back NBA championships and Finals MVP trophies, Kevin Durant’s Summer is looking pretty relaxed right now. However, there’s also the matter of his free agency, although it is highly unlikely that KD will go anywhere else considering Warriors GM Bob Myers has openly stated that he’d give Durant “whatever he wants” to stay in the Bay. While that mini-drama plays itself out, Durant’s fans have his new shoes – the KD 11 – to look forward to, and it looks like the “Paranoid” colorway just dropped overseas. A U.S. release date for this blue/volt pair still eludes us , but grab them now on Nike Europe.

While some may take a break when they reach the top, KD now works harder than ever knowing that everyone is after his spot. Fueled by the paranoia of losing what he’s worked to attain, he obsesses over his game, continually pushing past his own pinnacle. The Nike KD 11 Paranoid honors his maniacal mindset for winning and the use of what he calls “appropriate fear” to prevent him from ever settling. The shoe features a light blue Flyknit upper with royal blue overlays and white branding. A semi translucent midsole with full-length Nike Zoom Air cushioning lodged inside responsive Nike React foam.

The KD 11 rides atop a rubber cupsole to contain its React and full-length Zoom Air setup. Nightwing2303 and Stanley T. both say the shoe rides high (and both were not fans of the shoe, although the cushion is money).

KD 11 “Oreo”

Following his back-to-back NBA Championship, Nike Basketball has officially unveiled Kevin Durant’s next signature shoe, the Nike KD 11. The shoe is described as California casual. Or simply acknowledge it as the ultimate merger of laid-back chill shoe and performance basketball equipment.

 

Earlier this week Nike shared a first look at the KD 11. Today a second colorway has already emerged in black and grey. Kevin Durant‘s favored Zoom Air cushioning makes its way back into the fold as Nike’s REACT foam joins in on the fun, marking the first time it’s been incorporated into KD’s signature line. The Flyknit upper consist of black and dark grey weaving that gives it a charcoal look while branding is kept to a minimum with KD’s logo subtly placed on the heel counter and Nike’s Swoosh logo found on the lateral side of the toebox. The aforementioned sole unit receives a translucent touch to complete the colorway.

 

On the KD 11, the third consecutive KD signature to feature Nike’s most adaptable textile technology, the Flyknit gets a little more plush, a little more “broken-in” and a thus a lot softer.

 

The shoe itself has a rubber cup sole that houses the Nike React and Nike Zoom. The former cushions between court and body, while the latter sits just under the foot to provide response. A key component in the resulting system was identifying the correct thickness for the foam element, which Chang notes is taller than in typical basketball shoes.

 

“He likes the feel of the Flyknit Trainer and the Nike Epic React”, says Chang. “Last summer, he loved the Air Sock Racer — that is where the collar of the 11 came from, and all the lofting in the tongue and quarter followed”.

The KD 11 rides atop a rubber cupsole to contain its React and full-length Zoom Air setup. Nightwing2303 and Stanley T. both say the shoe rides high, but we’ll have more detailed information when the performance reviews are finished. You can learn more by checking out the Nike KD 11 deconstructed.
