The aesthetically different shoe features a new lacing system, with the dynamic lacing locking down your foot with a pull of the shoe strings. The shoe also boasts a Flyknit shroud, which is strategically knitted to feature a lotus look. Tech wise, the Kobe A.D. NXT features a drop-in, Lunarlon midsole with a heel Zoom unit embedded for extra responsiveness. Most evident in that charge is the Nike Kobe AD NXT’s new lacing structure. Unconventional in aesthetic, the arrangement functions to promote optimum containment during play — naturally adjusting to the athlete and providing a secure fit for each foot.
