When the images of the Nike Kobe X first leaked, they left a lot of people both underwhelmed and confused. Why would Nike go with such a minimalist sneaker after crafting one of the most innovative performance sneakers in recent memory? Well, fear not, as it appears Nike also has a knit high-top model of the Kobe X in the works, too.
This version of the Kobe X obviously more echoes the Kobe 9 Elite than the low version does. In fact, upon first glance, not much is different except for the translucent midsole and outsole. Nevertheless, fans of the wild colorways that the Kobe 9 presented may still be left feeling disappointed, as it appears the knit structure of this Kobe X high doesn't present the same opportunities for aesthetic flavor as the 9's did. Whatever the case, this purple pair should see plenty of on-court time, being that the Lakers' colors happen to be purple and gold.
