Nike KOBE X ‘Blackout’: ‘I work out until I black out’

First of all, how badass is the inspiration for this colorway of the Nike KOBE X ‘Blackout’? Said Kobe Bryant, “When I’m really feeling it … I work out until I black out.”

I love this colorway! The black with the dark purple/Persian Violet upper actually makes it look like a meaner Lakers colorway and is perfect on the sleek silhouette. One of my favorite details is the pseudo-opaque Zoom Air pocket in the heel. The Kobe X is one of the best-looking models of its line. It looks like high-tech and efficient in its build, like Kobe’s game.

I could say a lot more, but it’s just a strong shoe. There’s nothing more Kobe the player than this Blackout version of his shoe.
