This innovative and ultralight basketball shoe moves naturally with your foot while providing the lockdown and responsiveness Kobe demands. A virtually seamless, formfitting Flyknit upper integrates areas of breathability, stretch, and support. Flywire technology locks your foot down for a lightweight, locked-in feel. Knit collar combines a low-top feel with high-top support. Plush foam around the heel and ankle for comfort. Sandwich mesh tongue for enhanced ventilation. Ultra-lightweight, springy Lunarlon cushioning for soft, yet responsive shock absorption from tip-off to final buzzer. Made with less outsole rubber than traditional basketball shoes for enhanced flexibility and traction.
