For some odd reason I like the Nike Kobe AD NXT triple black ( I’m still not scooping up a pair though). I guess certain colors have a way of hiding the hideous aesthetic of a shoe. I think this is the case with this triple black NXT; they are set to release officially on June 3rd.

They feature an all black breathable mesh upper with a layer that goes over the footbridge and is supported by three elastic cables. They also have an adjustable lacing system centered on the outside of the tongue. Nike branding hits the midsole and Kobe’s own logos are featured on the back panel. The goal was to create a performance shoe that could also be used as a casual sneaker. A friend of mine actually played in them; apparently they adjust naturally to one’s foot and provide optimum containment. They sport a lunarlon midsole and are also equipped with an additional drop-in insole with a zoom air bag incorporated in the heel for extra cushioning. They are definitely great for basketball , my only gripe with these is the aesthetic. So far this is the only picture I was able to get for this new colorway so stay tuned for further updates.
