Nike KOBE Elite "Team"
Due Date: 4/17/15
Per Kicks on Fire: Nike Basketball has officially unveiled the latest elite series of footwear for Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Kevin Durant, as we first highlight the Nike Kobe 10 Elite.
The Nike Kobe 10 Elite flaunts a Flyknit upper construction with dynamic Flywire technology that offers versatility of movement in every direction, while offering sufficient strength, breathability and support, that’s been specifically tweaked to Kobe Bryant’s needs. Sporting a high-cut profile overall to aid his weakened achilles, the Nike Kobe 10 Elite is actually noted as the first Flyknit basketball shoe constructed with recycled polyester yarn – which is essentially equivalent to five recycled plastic bottles.
Supplemented with a dynamic sole unit that incorporates Lunarlon, Nike Zoom Air and Nike Free-inspired elements in contrasting White with Volt accents, look for the Nike Kobe 10 Elite edition at select Nike retailers on April 17.
Air Jordan 7 "Sweater"
Due Date: 10/1/15
Per Kicks on Fire: From the Air Jordan 8 “Aqua,” “Three Time’s A Charm,” and “Black and Chrome,” as well as the UNC-inspired Air Jordan 1 High and Varsity Royal/Black Air Jordan 14 Low – Jordan Brand’s stellar Holiday 2015 lineup is capped off with this iteration of the iconic Air Jordan 7.
A silhouette derived by aesthetic elements of the Nike Huarache and aspects of West African Tribal culture, this particular rendition of the Air Jordan 7 was inspired by a vibrant printed sweater and shorts that Michael Jordan wore on camera in an iconic commercial. Inheriting a predominantly White leather base, the pristine hue is doused with vivid hues such as Red, Purple, Bright Concord and Soar Blue enveloping its entirety for an eye-cathcing contrast.
Rounded out with a White midsole reinforced by Black, Red and Purple shades to coordinate with its respective theme, look for this vibrant edition of the classic Air Jordan 7, as well as the aforementioned Air Jordan silhouettes at Jordan Brand and Nike retailers sometime during Holiday 2015.
