The company claims that this new technology is similar to the design of a spider web. This acts as a second skin and gives him engineered strength and flexibility.
The sole of the shoe gives an impression of Kobe’s own feet. It is based on pressure mapping of Kobe’s own feet, creating a beautiful pattern and giving much-needed traction on the court.
- Nike Flywire – Strong yet dynamic for lockdown through midfoot. Its wires loosen and tighten with the motion of the foot giving it a tight and comfortable grab of the foot.
- Heel – The heel is made of carbon fibre. This provides strong and lightweight stability to the sidewise movement of the feet.
- Foot Cushioning – Nike uses Lunarlon cushioning inside the shoes. This helps in keeping the foot in contact with the ground when the pressure mapping outer sole delivers the correct traction with the contours of one’s feet.
The multicolour flyknit upper with a reflective tonal graphics, a neon sparkled midsole and a print melange at the inner sole makes these shoes special.
