After starting out a bit bolder in color — exemplified by the “Easter” and “Silk” and “Vino” editions — the Kobe 10 seems to have saved the stylishly neutral palettes for last. The Kobe 10 Flight hit stores last week — teal, sure, but a rather subdued shade — and the “Wolf Grey” edition is on the horizon, and now you can add another understated look to the docket: the Nike Kobe 10 White/Black.
The title pretty much tells the whole story, as the innovative hoops shoe goes crisp, clean and nearly colorless for summer. White covers the layered textile upper, the overlays, even the game-changing sole unit — it of the Lunarlon, Zoom Air and Free technologies. Black sharply contrasts on the Swoosh and inner-lining, and . . . that’s pretty much it. Striking in its simplicity, the Kobe 10 White/Black eschews brazen style in order to keep the focus on the awe-inspiring design, framed in white.
No word yet on a release date, so stay tuned for updates as they roll in.
