Kobe might be out for the season, but that won't get in the way of one of the most important basketball shoe releases this year, the Kobe X. Bryant's tenth shoe forgoes the big and bold supercar-like designs that have always been a big trend in basketball with a cleaner, more modern design and the controversial low silhouette.

Inspired by sharkskin, the shoe's upper features an open-weave textile that is stronger and lighter than traditional mesh and is also breathable. A mesh bootie inside the shoe gives allows for a glove-like fit and Lunarlon is merged with Nike Free-inspired siping for natural flex on the court. 

The Kobe X will be available on nike.com and select retail locations on February 7th
