The latest chapter in the Kobe Bryant sneaker line will by by the name of the Nike Kobe A.D. Mid. The Nike Kobe A.D. Mid is a continuation of Mamba Mentality (see video above) that encompasses both the physical and psychological elements of basketball. Kobe’s passion for practice and training is well known, but curiosity about the external factors that influence human behavior is lesser known. One aspect of that interest is the psychology of color — particularly in understanding the correlations between color, attitude and emotion.

The new Nike Kobe A.D. Mid applies Bryant’s intrigue of how color personally affects him by releasing the model in five different tonal offerings that illuminate the origins and depth of his need and desire for improvement.

The Nike Kobe A.D. comes in five different colorways that are linked to five different representations. They’re as follows.

  • Purple represents overcoming challenges and setting fresh goals.
  • Red is acknowledged as a symbol of passion.
  • Yellow represents positivity.
  • Grey represents calm neutrality.
  • Blue transmits dependability and trust.


The shoe comes with a multilayer upper that provides a lightweight, ultra-thin feel but at the same time is strong and supportive. Below you will find a Lunarlon foam combined with Zoom Air that provides you with a soft and responsive cushioning. The Engineered tread provides optimal traction that helps you cut and move swiftly.

Look for the Nike Kobe A.D. Mid to release August 24th for the retail price of $150.
