This shoe may not be quite as aesthetically pleasing as the Kobe 9 Elite but it is more rugged and even more comfortable. The technology put into this makes this one of the most cutting edge pieces of footwear out there.
The Flyknit upper makes a return and helps to keep the shoe light and strong as the foot moves around inside. This combined with the high collar also help keep the shoe locked down to stop any loss of energy when moving. The collar is also stiffer than on the previous model which reduces comfort a tiny amount but really helps to keep the shoe stable.
The outsole has the same pattern as the regular model which provides great traction and great bounce. The Technology put in makes the movement in the shoe easy and effortless. The laces do all the way up to the top to stop the shoe moving around the foot and becoming uncomfortable.
Overall, this shoe is technologically advanced and contains a great deal of comfort points. This shoe is designed to give the wearer an edge and it has enough put into it to really help with that.
