It’s still strange not to see Kobe Bryant in the purple and gold during last NBA season. As the Basketball enthusiast, I would like to test this one this time .
Now here we go:
Firstly, we can look close the box as attached :
It is signature box which Kobe . the side of box have the specification as usually ，including the size and colorway and so on .
And then open the box, the Nike Kobe A.D EP ‘Midnight Navy’ just stay quietly in there .
Now we can see the details :this colorway — Black Mamba has retired for good, Nike Basketball is still making sure that the Black Mamba DNA continues throughout today’s NBA with the latest strong addition to Kobe’s signature sneaker lineage with the Kobe AD.
A clean and simple dark blue option perfect for anyone playing for a team that utilizes the shade. There’s no thematic element to this release, but instead, it’s just a solid team-centric option for high schoolers, collegiate players, and pros alike. The updated Engineered Mesh upper features hits of Pure Platinum and White on the branding throughout while that unique heel gets a matching Midnight Navy shade.
For me , I satisfied with this colorway .
I played two hours in the clean court , I feel good , the supporting is excellent . The design of heel is special which dark blue leather stitching and feel a little stiff .
We can see the details of picture : The lace system is neat and orderly, The upper used the EM materail which great protection and lighter , the most important is Nike Kobe A.D EP “Midnight Navy “ have excellent Ventilation.
Maybe we can see the XDR material in Nike Kobe A.D EP “Midnight Navy “,that is special feature which can improve the performance .
The bottom line actually have not very good for gripping . though it is beautiful with MAMBA logo . I dont think it is can did its job very well in outside court.
The white tongue with the MAMBA logo , and the same design of logo is the midsole , there is a kobe signature with black .
There is a picture that on feet :
For me , I think it a amazing and value shoes .There is my score for this shoes : the appearance : 9 sores , cushion: 9 scores ， supporting： 8 scores
Gripping : 6 scores .
Overall , Nike A.D EP “Midnight Navy “ is worth to buy.
Kobe signature in an attempt to create a gap between the models he played in when compared to his post-retirement offerings, but this is a signature shoe that Kobe himself would be proud enough to play in, whatever the colorway ,the design and supporting , that is worth .
