So many Kobe sneakers, so little time.
When the Nike Kobe A.D. was unveiled, it was unknown how many sneakers Nike Basketball would release for the Kobe series. With the Black Mamba retired, many sneaker heads were left to wonder if the Kobe line would suffer behind the LeBron, Kyrie, or Durant line. However with so many colorways already dropped since the Kobe A.D. launch, the Kobe System isn’t going anywhere.
Despite Bryant being away from the game, players like Isaiah Thomas, John Wall, and DeMar DeRozan extend the life of the Mamba Army. Each of these players have heavily worn the Kobe A.D. and NXT as they dominate the court in the NBA Playoffs. With so many faces of the Kobe line, aka #TeamKobe, the end of the series is far from likely as they continue to represent the Mamba through and through.
The NBA Playoffs are in full swing as the second-round has begun with the fight for conference finals. Starting early June, the 2017 NBA Playoffs begin. However, Nike Basketball is hooking up their signature stars with no Elite series, but this new Flip the Switch collection. This Kobe A.D. is now part of the line in an all black base with University Red and Hyper Violet hits. A great addition to this colorway is the broken Swoosh bringing a unique flavor to the line.
The Nike Kobe A.D. Flip the Switch Pack drops this Friday May 5, 2017 for $160.o0 USD at most Nike retailers. This is one of the better drops for this model, so make sure you get your pair early.
