Having released a super-minimal variation of the sneaker earlier this year, Nike is now taking the Kobe AD NXT back to distinctly bolder home turf for its latest release.

Inspired by the classic Mercurial soccer boot as an homage to Kobe‘s passion for the sport, the new “Mambacurial” comes in an unassuming black colorway, taken to the next aesthetic level with added accenting in flashes of near-neon Turquoise — including exaggerated Nike branding to the medial suede of the shoe.

The Nike Kobe AD NXT “Mambacurial” is due for release toward the end of this year.
