Tomorrow marks the release of the first pair of Kobe 10s. It seems that Kobe has kept the design very similar to the Kobe line with a very basic low sneaker. The above sneaker is the "5 a.m. flight" colorway featuring a deep blue upper and an almost translucent blue outsole. It features a mesh upper which is going to be great if you are looking to hoop in these shoes. I personally play in a pair of high top Kobe 9s they are super comfortable and offer a ton of ankle support for all you like me who have rolled your ankle one too many times. Like I was saying, this mesh is going to be great for breathability letting a lot of the heat your foot generates out of the shoe. This process will help keep your feet cool and much less gross. (LOL) If you're a sucker for detail like I am the inside of the shoe offers splashes of red color that are very attractive to the eye. If you're looking for a lightweight, breathable sneaker, these might just be the sneaker for you. This is the very first Kobe 10 colorway so if you're not a fan of that upper being dangerously close to Duke blue, then go ahead and wait for a colorway that speaks to you. These sneakers are retailing at a modest 180 USD (yes 180 dollars is modest in 2015) so they are a pretty cost efficient purchase as well. Overall I give these a thumbs up and will definitely be buying a pair when they go up on NikeId. Anyways for all of you going after these on Nike remember that they have changed their release time to 10 am, it is no longer 8 am. For all of you on the west coast I'm sure you're ecstatic. Good luck hunting tomorrow morning, and I hope some of you had luck with the Dark Obsidian Foams this morning!
