The Kobe X Blackout is a shoe that brings together the performance benefits associated with Nike shoes with an intangible inspiration factor that derives from Kobe's legendary and obsessive workout routine and nearly two decades of seemingly limitless dedication playing for the iconic purple and gold of the Los Angeles Lakers.
The shoe's name borrows from Kobe's statement that when he's really "feeling it", he sometimes will work out until he blacks out. This insight inspired the Kobe X Blackout's colorway. The shoe features the deep purple associated with Kobe's beloved L.A. Lakers with liberal use of black, which is all Kobe sees when he collapses following an intense workout.
The Kobe X Blackout is available at select retail locations as well as Nike's official website. Thi
