Rolling out not soon after a similar iteration of the Nike Lebron 12, here we find Kobe Bryant’s tenth shoe with Nike outfitted in a stealthy blue and grey colorway for the “Flight” release.

Resting atop a full-length Zoom Air outsole, the sneaker is done up with a textured, ballistic mesh-like material through the upper, which has been laid over with translucent tape at the seams. At the interior, meticulously-placed orange hits at the sneaker’s collar seems to reference pilot’s bomber jackets.

This toned-down version of the shoe certainly adds a neat twist to an otherwise athletic-forward canon we’ve seen of the Kobe X thus far.
