Nike HTM’s latest addition is a bid to innovate the NikeLab Kobe X Elite Low HTM to levels previously unseen. The ongoing collaboration between Hiroshi Fujiwara, Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker features a low-profile version of the Kobe X in three colorways with each color bearing a symbol representative of Kobe Bryant’s skill on court. Through the use of the most up to date Nike technologies, the Kobe X Elite Low HTM is a sure nod towards future applications.
Combining HTM’s aesthetic and Nike’s artillery of performance technologies, careful detailing has been applied to all aspects of the shoe — most notable is that each colorway comes equipped with two different sets of screw-in aglets in varying metallic finish color and HTM branding. Nike Free-inspired flex grooves are highlighted along the outsole with a combination of Nike Lunarlon cushioning, Nike Zoom Air and Nike Free-inspired sipping coming together to form a special hybrid cushioning system for the Kobe X Elite Low HTM. The Flyknit upper is complemented by an advanced traction system and a flexible midsole for optimum grip on court. To read more about Nike HTM’s latest project, click here.
