Sometimes, the term “basic” is the furthest thing from a pejorative. It’s synonymous with the fundamentals, which must be mastered as a key to the game. The Nike Kobe X “Fundamentals” embodies that sensibility, featuring a simple black and white color scheme. The upper is executed with a white mesh build, complemented with dark Wolf-Grey accents and additional hits of black at the Swoosh, Kobe Bryant sheath logo and a black Mamba snake pattern on the tongue. Four red “Achilles” marks on the left heel, representing four feet of stitching thread used during Kobe Bryant’s surgery, round out the details. The kicks are set to launch through Nike.com starting 8 am EDT on Thursday, May 21.
