Editor’s Notes: The Mamba may be retired, but that certainly isn't stopping Nike from continuing his sneaker lineage, here presenting the new Kobe A.D. NXT. The shoe was in turn designed by Bryant alongside long time Kobe-Collaborator and Nike Senior designer, Eric Avar. The unconventional lacing system and entry is meant to mimic a clam shell, while the Flyknit design is woven in a circular pattern as another symbol of a lotus flower representing “rebirth” in traditional Hindu or Buddhist ideologies.

You can look forward to the Kobe A.D. NXT from Nike arriving in grey and volt colorways on April 3.
