The Nike Kobe 10 “5 AM Flight” will be the first Nike Kobe 10 to release. Nike Basketball has officially unveiled Kobe Bryant’s 10th signature shoe, the Kobe X.

Nike Kobe 10 X 5AM Flight – Colorway Details


Each Kobe X colorway reveals something new about Bryant’s drive and
determination. The lead colorway, 5 AM Flight, takes inspiration from Bryant’s 40-foot, early morning leap from a diving platform in August 2013 as he recovered from his ACL surgery. The jump is symbolic of Bryant’s perseverance to overcome the odds and face fear head-on. The shoe’s blue palette represents the pool water of Bryant’s 5 AM flight.

Inside the shoe a mesh bootie enhances ventilation and provides a comfortable, snug fit. Nubuck fabric on the shoe’s tongue features a mamba-inspired snake scale pattern, while the tongue’s underside features unique graphic prints symbolic of each colorway storyline.

The left heel in each pair features four red lines representing Bryant’s resilient return from injuring his left Achilles tendon. To repair the tendon, doctors used four feet of stitching thread in surgery. The Kobe sheath logo adorns the right heel of each shoe.

The KOBE X features hybrid cushioning, an advanced traction system and a seamless textile upper. And a traction “nodules” that works in tandem with the midsole cushioning to splay, flex and grip like performance racecar tires. The outsole is finished off with a Gold Roman numeral “X,” a hand-drawn design detail from Avar, embedded beneath the Zoom unit; it’s another example of the detailed design obsession brought to each Kobe shoe.

  • Chris

    Been liking these since day 1. Told you guys the upper was a woven material. I like the nike free style sole and lunarlon combo. Not sure about the giant tongue on the AS pair though. Hope they make an elite low like last year.

  • Fish Sticks

    Gotta feeling these are gonna sit. So far…only pairs that show any potential are the silk road ones [based solely on the colorway]…and “maybe” the highs.
