An Honest Review Of The Grey Nike Kobe AD | Housakicks

Sharing is caring!

I couldn’t wait to pick up a pair of the Grey  Nike Kobe AD; they sold out instantly online on November 22. But the next day, I was in my local HOH and they were still available in my size ( size 12). So I quickly paid the $160 plus tax and picked them up, and was very eager to rush to the playground to test them. Well, I couldn’t test them the same day because by the time I got home, it was already dark, another reason why I hate this time of the year.

So on the thursday of thanksgiving, I grabbed my recording device , and with the help of my son and my buddy Andrew, I rushed to the court to evaluate the shoes- here are my observations:

-Aesthetic: the shoes definitely look great in grey. I love the iridescent effect on the back; I think the DNA motif on the heel is brilliant- a reminder of mimicking one’s game after Kobe.

-Cushion: Cushion is 9.9/10; these are the very first Kobe signature shoes with a midsole. They are equipped with the lunarlon midsole intended to distribute the shock impact evenly on the foot and legs. It is light and very well padded, so cushioning is great.

_Traction:  I was purposely dragging my feet, and was questioned by my son about it humorously. Well, traction is good, I was on a dry playground so I had no problems setting my feet and shooting. I took two spot up shots and nailed them both, I was well balanced; traction is 9/10

-Comfort/Stability: This was my biggest disappointment- as soon as I laced up the shoes, I wanted to take them off. Remember, they feature flywires which are supposed to enhance stability and keep your foot locked in. I have a very wide foot so , so I felt like the shoes were literally crushing, squeezing and choking my feet. It got to the point where my feet felt warm and I was very uncomfortable. I had to cut the video short and didn’t even do a ” in game” feature of them. My feet were definitely stable but very sore on the sides and near the toe box. I definitely wouldn’t recommend them for people with wide feet. I think Kobe engineered them with people with narrow feet in mind.

I even tried to wear the shoes last night for my Sunday pick up game and took them off after 5 mn. I was told to get a bigger size but the problems I’m having with the shoes are occurring on the side panels; I don’t think even a bigger size will be a solution. Watch my video below for the entire breakdown.
