The masked mamba’s first game came Kobe’s senior year after he broke his nose diving for a ball. The next night, after going 4-for-14 wearing a mask, Kobe threw it in the trash at halftime and went off. Through the pain, he finished with 39 points in an overtime win that would take his team to state.
In the Kobe X Men's Basketball Shoe, speed and precision become one. Improved traction and more flexible cushioning help you capture the game and strike without warning. The translucent rubber outsole features a new, unique traction pattern for enhanced grip while you're cutting and sprinting. The translucent textile upper offers lightweight durability for long-lasting wear. While you're jumping and accelerating, a carbon-fiber shank increases the shoe's responsiveness. The soft Lunarlon foam has multidirectional flex grooves at the forefoot, allowing your toes to spread naturally for a more powerful first step.
Nike Zoom unit in the heel for responsive, low-profile cushioning
Mesh half inner-sleeve for ventilation and comfort
Synthetic overlays on the heel for support
Carbon fibre outrigger for lateral stability
