Kobe Bryant aka “The Black Mamba” turns 39 years old today, but for a guy as fiercely competitive as he is, age is just a number. His “Mamba Mentality” is now being applied in other facets of his life now that he’s retired from the game, but he’s passed down that unrelenting attitude to a select number of stars that are in the NBA today.
Tomorrow, Nike Basketball is set to release the next shoe in the Kobe signature shoe lineage – the Kobe AD in a new mid-top form; five tonal colorways representing the five emotions of the Mamba Mentality – Passion, Detached, Honesty, Fearless, and Optimism – are included in this set, with each colorway featuring pristine details that rival some of the best Kobe releases of all-time. Nike celebrated this landmark of Kobe’s life with this insane box set given to Friends and Family, and we were lucky enough to receive one of these incredible sets to give this shoe a first-hand look.
The Nike Kobe AD “Mamba Mentality” Pack releases tomorrow on Nike SNKRS+ App at 10 AM EST as well as select retailers worldwide.
