If this past weekend of NBA games wasn’t hint enough with games like the Cavs-Rockets and Clippers-Bulls showcasing an added intensity, teams have started to make their respective playoff pushes as the regular season comes to a close. Around this time every year, Nike Basketball roles out their ‘Elite Series‘ as their top-three tier of signature superstars receive revamped silhouettes with a construction that boasts a more lightweight feel, new aesthetics, and added cushioning systems. As the season evolves, so do the game’s top superstars, so why shouldn’t their shoes? The Kobe 10 Elite features a hightop flyknit construction throughout, one that utilizes recycled polyester yarn, while Lunarlon cushioning and that Zoom Air, Nike Free-inspired outsole returns for a dynamic fit. While this Kobe 10 will undoubtedly not be featured on Kobe’s feet during the NBA playoffs this year, designer Eric Avar made sure to create a silhouette that will perform at the highest of peaks throughout the post-season for any athlete that models their game after Bryant’s.
The Kobe 10 Elite ‘Team’ will be available April 18th. The Kobe 10 Elite ‘Elevate’ will arrive May 15th. The Kobe 10 Elite ‘Rose Gold’ will debut June 5th.
