Nike’s athletic prowess isn’t something that’s up for debate, and if their 2019 lineup is anything to go by, it seems that the monolithic company has only just begun to innovate on the world of purposeful footwear. Now, the brand has unveiled the next in a long line of basketball-oriented silhouettes, dubbed the KOBE AD NXT — a highly-technical shoe that’s set to change the game when it comes to the hardtop.
The Nike AD NXT is, in fact, the most technologically advanced basketball shoe that’s ever been admitted into the KOBE lineup, boasting a bespoke traction pattern that’s been formulated to improve performance on the world’s most prolific indoor courts, a full REACT midsole, and the brand’s interesting QUADFIT architecture. The result: A soft stack height sneaker that feels at home on any court, thanks to its all-encompassing fit, sleek, sporty stylings, and synchronized systems that make the shoe feel more like an extension of one’s body, rather than a peripheral. Pricing isn’t available, just yet; but stay tuned to Nike’s website for more information as we approach the shoe’s August 24 drop date.
