Kobe’s 10th model is dropping soon, and it’s dropping hard. Called the “5AM Flight” this first release of the Nike Kobe X takes inspiration from Kobe’s early morning 40-foot pool dive after recovering from surgery on his unforgettable Achilles injury. The sneaker has been equipped with a beautiful Blue Lagoon open-weave textile upper, with matching blue suede applied to the tongue. A black swoosh has been applied to the sides to provide the perfect contrast, with dark orange used to embroider the tongue logo. A oceanic pattern has been used on the inner lining. Finally, a blue translucent Lunarlon sole has been applied, revealing the Zoom air unit, incorporated as part of Nike’s hybrid cushioning system.
The Nike Kobe X “5AM Flight” hits stores on Saturday, February 7 with a retail price set at $180. They will be available at online sites like Nikestore beginning at 10:00 am EST.
