Today, Nike has unveiled the Elite Collection for their Big Three; this time excluding Kyrie’s shoes from the sets. There are a total of 9 color ways with 3 shoes in 3 different sets. Each set is scheduled to release in April, May, and June and without a surprise, that’s when the NBA season ends and playoffs begin to intensify. All the shoes get an upgraded look and feature some old and some new technology.
Although the Lakers have had another disastrous season and will finish without their superstar, Nike is still releasing the Kobe Xs for his fans and supporters. The Kobe X Elite brings back the high top design like the Kobe IX Elites and features a Nike Flyknit upper and dynamic Flyknit technology for support. The traction system will feature the same fushion of Lunarlon foam, Nike Zoom Air, and Nike Free-inspired technology. The Kobes are also incredibly eco-friendly and boasts about utalizing recycled polyester yarn. Each pair is equivalent to five recycled bottles.
