Kobe Bryant may have retired more than a season ago, but his sneaker remains the go-to for many NBA athletes. If you haven’t watched this season and perhaps been living under a rock, the Nike Kobe A.D. is the weapon of choice. Not only has the shoe been worn by your usual DeMar DeRozan’s of world, your Julius Randle’s of the world, or your Andre Iguoudala’s of the world, but rookies have been lacing up the A.D. Mid’s quite often since draft night.
This new A.D. colorway arrives in a MPLS esque throwback with a Grey upper and Yellow hits throughout. Nike has not release a Laker colorway yet, but this is by far the closest we have gotten towards since their debut a couple months ago during Summer. A new addition to the shoe however is the new snakeskin pattern on the Grey suede. Not seen in a long time by Kobe fans, the snake print is welcomed as it is a standard for the series in design. The Swoosh is done in Habanero Red, a new color by Nike, combined with Circuit Orange and translucent outsole to finish the look.
The Nike Kobe A.D. “Grey Snake” has a tentative release date of November 17, 2017 for $150.00 USD. We will keep you updated if the shoe launches on a different date.
