Nike Kobe X Elite EXT QS White/Metallic Silver
Originally released as a mid-top silhouette, the Black Mamba’s off-court Kobe X is set to be released as a high-top in time for the holidays. Aptly dubbed the Kobe X Elite EXT, the design essentially pairs the Flyknit-constructed Kobe X Elite with the materials and aesthetic of the previous off-court releases, in this case donning a White/Metallic Silver colorway and gum rubber outsole. Gone this time around, however, is the all-over “X” motif that decorated the mids — it’s been replaced with an embossed shark tooth-like pattern throughout.
Designated as a Holiday 2015 release, the White/Metallic Silver Kobe X Elite EXT QS will be available this Saturday, October 17 in limited quantities from Tokyo’s Kinetics before hitting additional NSW spots across the globe in the weeks ahead.
