Nike Kobe A.D.

The Nike KOBE AD NXT is a bit of a Frankenstein's monster. The shoe lifts the best qualities from Nike's FastFit, QUADFIT, and REACT and mashes them together in a shoe that puts the wearer closer to the ground without losing comfort. "It is our most technologically advanced basketball shoe we've done in the KOBE line, due to the combination of complex components," states Ross Klein, Senor Creative Director for Nike Basketball Footwear. The whole purpose of the shoe is better control, which is gained by getting the athlete closer to the ground. At the request of Kobe, Nike developed a shoe that would match Kobe's speed and agility. To get that control, the KOBE AD NXT combines a new traction pattern with a specific height and angle. The midsole from the REACT shoe is added for a low but soft stack height.
