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 .
