Comparable to that of the iconic 1990s Air Zoom Flight “The Glove”, Kobe Bryant’s latest model, the Nike Kobe Icon in “Metallic Gold” features a similar shrouded construction and mimics many of the The Glove‘s design cues and fuses it with updated Nike technology. Constructed from a lightweight, breathable fabric upper, the design’s lacing system is inset and hidden beneath a midfoot zip closure with supportive heel and ankle countering. Featuring a Zoom Kobe VI tooling system and a seasonal, metallic gold upper, the latest Nike Kobe Zoom Icon is scheduled to release as early as January 15, 2016. Stay tuned for updates and supplier information early on in the new year.
