As though they weren't elite enough, Nike unveils the Elite editions of its Kobe VII and Lebron 9 shoes. Both shoes feature premium materials and technologies that can only come from Nike.
Home and away colors are the inspiration for the black and white base colors, while the trophy is what Nike designers had in mind when they decided on the gold elements.
Check out the beauty that is Nike Kobe VII Elite below:
On court, you always want the lightest shoe because you want to move faster, yes? Well, the Nike Kobe VII Elite, like the Lebron 9 below, is a very light and very responsive footwear, thanks to the carbon fiber on their construction.
Both shoes also feature padded collar protection, inspired by the Nike Pro Combat. The padded collar protection, positioned between the tongue and and innersleeves, doesn't just give the shoes a unique aesthetic. It, more importantly, supports you from impact and pressure.
Note: The collar is adjustable, too, so you are assured of a perfect fit.
The LeBron 9, meanwhile, includes extra carbon fiber enforcement that flows from the heel to the wing. If you want to play strong, like your idol Lebrony, this is it for you. Why? Because the shoes is inspired by Lebron's style of play.
Both shoes, of course, features the signature Nike Flywire technology. But given that this is the Elite edition, the ulta-high tensile Flywire is made with Kelvar aramid. Why is this important? Because the material doesn't stretch as much as the usual material, making the shoe stronger and lighter.
The Nike Kobe VII retails at P9,995, while the Lebron 9 is at P11,595. Available in Nike Stores.
