We gave you all an inside look with our first impression of the Kobe X Elite model. Don’t forget, the Elite series was created to upgrade performance in signature shoes for the most important part of the NBA season, the Playoffs. Over the past couple years, most of us just want to see what design Nike comes out with so we can rock them on court. For me, I see it as a new plethora of sneakers to use on court, especially the Kobe’s.
Nike is releasing an Elite sneaker each month starting with April until June and beyond. The first is the “Team” colorway in purple and volt, then the “Elevate”, and lastly this “Rose Gold” model. Out of all three models, the majority have favorited the black “Rose Gold” and personally, I think they are fire.50 Best Kobe X on Nike ID
Nike might have taken the shade of gold from the Michael Kors watch line, but whatever it is, it works really well in this silhouette. The placement of the colors are very subtle for this one as Rose Gold hits are only seen on the swoosh branding on the side panels. To keep it simple, the Flyknit is done in all black and peach hits are seen on the exposed Flywire and Zoom bag. Lastly, the white midsole finishes off the sleek look along with some speckles for added character.
The Nike Kobe X “Rose Gold” releases June 5th, 2015 for $225.00 USD. Here are some on foot images from @Snkr_base.
