The Nike Kobe A.D. Mid is a continuation of Mamba Mentality that encompasses both the physical and psychological elements of basketball. Kobe’s passion for practice and training is well known, but curiosity about the external factors that influence human behavior is lesser known. One aspect of that interest is the psychology of color — particularly in understanding the correlations between color, attitude and emotion. The shoe comes with a multilayer upper that provides a lightweight, ultra-thin feel but at the same time is strong and supportive. Below you will find a Lunarlon foam combined with Zoom Air that provides you with a soft and responsive cushioning. The Engineered tread provides optimal traction that helps you cut and move swiftly.
