Nike Kobe A.D. Performance Review


The Nike Kobe AD is Kobe Bryant’s twelfth signature shoe. It is the first sneaker to release after Kobe’s retirement from the NBA.KOBE AD full name is After Death. “Down below, the Kobe A.D. is equipped with a translucent midsole sidewall, exposing a Lunarlon midsole and a Zoom Air unit in the heel for maximum responsiveness, comfort and cushioning with your every move.” – Nike.The Nike official site said .

Now we get it

The out box was changed which have not ID card .

Nike Kobe AD colorway is attraction by people , with black and gold Swoosh  .

The Lunarlon midsole which clear color.

The toe of shoes have code :Rebirth and Evolution.


Textile mesh is used along the upper. It’s lightweight, strong and durable. It’s also very supportive for a textile

It is more lighter .But the white is not easy keep clean .


Kobe AD used a large volume Zoom unit in the heel. However, it’s just an engraved piece of TPU that Nike was able to replicate the look of Zoom on .The Zoom Air unit within the rock hard “Lunarlon” midsole.


DeMar DeRozan wear the Kobe shoes in the season game .

Here are some picture as below :

2, Cushioning :

The Lunarlon midsole is not good that I expect .You get some court feel , The cushion of the shoe doesn’t offer impact protection, you do get some court feel but it’s not even a responsive or comfortable setup.

3, Supporting :

As we know the low shoes seem not very good for supporting .But Kobe’s shoes always did a wonderful job of providing proper support for that specific low profile guard that wears a low top.

The A.D. has an outrigger with  TPU cage wrapped around the shoe’s heel and midfoot area and the whole outsole is flat

Here are some disadvantage that I played two hours .

1 ,The grip is not very well in the clear court . Compare with last version , it is seems more weak .

2, The white colorway is not easy to keep clean .

3, The midsole is a little stiff , I can feel not snug after playing long time

The setup is very lackluster and required more break-in time than one expects to put up with nowadays.

Overall , Kobe AD is worth to buy , the white color is great ,though it is not easy keep clean , the cushioning is not bad .

How do you think? If you have another idea .  just join us to discuss it .

Nike Kobe 11 Green Glow Performance Review

Though Kobe retired ,but the memory which he left never forgot by any one .
Now we get it .

[button link=””]Go To Buy a Nike Kobe 11 Green Glow[/button]

Appearance 10 score :
Now here is a view is very popular which is face score , yes , basketball shoes also have own face score . So whats is score of Nike Kobe 11 ,I give this one 10 score . The colorway is like a fresh wind , we can feel clean and comfortable . The details of design is delicate ,whatever the logo of kobe 11 ,or the shoes tongue . The 20 stars of tongue mean the basketball year of Kobe . Even the signature of the heel. How do you think ?

2, Support : 7score
Kobe 11 used the Flyknit .it’s almost executed perfectly this time around. It’s not raw FlyKnit. It’s not infused with glue either. They threaded TPU strands — or what I like to call fishing line — throughout the knit.

Since the flyknit was super stiff, it was really supportive on my foot. My foot didn’t move around in the footbed at all and there was no heel slippage so the lockdown was also very nice


3,Cushioning : 8 score
Kobe 11 used Lunarlon in midsole with a large volume zoom air unit bottom loaded in the heel. The zoom unit in the heel feels very nice. Super bouncy, responsive and soft. Without doubt , a lot of people like it .

4,Ventilation 8 score
The way Adidas uses primeknit in the crazylight boost 2015 is amazing and I wish Nike would implement that in their models. The flyknit in the kobe 11 is super supportive though. And the ventlation is very great with mesh materail inside .It does soften up over time but at first it’s pretty stiff. Overall, the materials are nice but I just wish that the materials were softer.

5,Cost performance 7 score
As the fan of Kobe . I am thinking of this shoes is competitive price with great quality .I play on a pretty dirty court which is 24 hour fitness, but no other shoe that I was testing was this bad.
Overall , Kobe 11 is a nice shoe but the cushion and the traction just ruined it for me. As a fan . I really like everything of Kobe .How do you think ?

With the finished of the game , Kobe got 60 scores in the games Vs JAZZ , But his legend of basketball .Though he retired , the series of Kobe witness his talent .Nike Kobe 11 released in new colorway ,which similar with the ZK 11 , I guess a lot of people will say ; What the hell you think? However people will love it after for a while .
