Designed for the ultimate competitor, the Nike Kobe IX Elite utilizes all of Nike's latest performance technology to offer a lightweight fit that enables natural motion for speed and strength on the court. The single layer Nike Flyknit creates a seamless engineered upper for lightweight performance integrating areas of high breathability, stretch, and support where it’s needed most. The Nike Flywire technology in the upper is strong yet dynamic for lockdown through the midfoot; its cables loosen and tighten with the natural motion of the foot. As you cut and jump, the cables spring into action to give you the lockdown you need to make dynamic moves with confidence. The carbon fiber heel counter delivers strong and lightweight lateral stability when moving from side to side, while the heel remains stable. All of these components in the upper create an incredibly light shoe that gives your foot the freedom to move naturally, yet provides enough stability to help prevent injury. The Nike Lunarlon cushioning insert in the midsole provides responsive cushioning that keeps the foot connected to the court. The pressure mapping designed outsole was made with minimal rubber for durable traction. It also mimics the natural contours of the foot to further enhance the feel of this shoe being an extension of your foot.
Delivering lightweight support, the Nike LunarGlide+ 5 running shoe adds speed to the mild to moderate overpronator's run. Showcasing Flywire technology and a heel clip, the upper hugs and secures your foot, preventing your foot from sliding during intense activity. The midsole features Lunarlon cushioning system and Dynamic Support platform, which support your foot and cushion your step, allowing a comfortable running experience. Made with BRS 1000 carbon rubber in the heel and environmentally-preferred rubber everywhere else, the outsole stabilizes your balance, grips a variety of surfaces, and helps the environment. Flex grooves are engineered to enhance natural running motion, promoting an efficient stride. Wt. 10.4 oz.
