Professional boxer Manny Pacquiao, a left-handed boxer 169cm tall, is the strongest boxing champion in Asia ever and has won multiple world boxing and different-magnitude championships; he has lightning-fast speeds, and even more serious is his surprise. He took out the right palm to knock down the opponent, and the action was fast enough to be surprising; his speed not only fascinated the audience, but also attracted Kobe Bryant's gaze, creating an idea for the design of basketball shoes.


For the KOBE series manager Eric Avar, designing a pair of boxing boots or a pair of basketball shoes is not a problem, but it is necessary to create a pair of comfortable, lightweight and multi-directional protection for basketball players. The sole of cheap Jordans sale with artificial leather must not be Satisfying their requirements does not satisfy the creative director.

Each pair of KOBE series has its own unique innovative design, technology or technology. Eric Avar's design has always emphasized "Nature Amplified" to coordinate the natural movements of the body. He simply used the lines to draw a sketch of KOBE IX ELITE. "Nature Amplified" concept selected FLYKNIT material as the main structure of KOBE IX ELITE's shoe body.


The FLYKNIT technology was born in early 2012. It is mainly used in running cheap Jordan shoes. Using a single yarn to weave the entire upper, it not only creates the ultimate lightness effect, but also enables the design of a very complex shape to create more for the body. The unique weaving technology of cheap Jordans for sale can create a strong toughness, and the breakthrough design is crazy enough. The running movement is mainly based on linear motion. FLYKNIT weaving technology is also relatively simple. Creating a different size of weaving method and structure with a single piece makes the shoe body more flexible. However, the basketball needs multiple movements. Considering more horizontal support will bring more challenges to the KOBE IX ELITE design.


To extend the FLYKNIT technology to basketball shoes, cheap Jordans uses a new knitting method and machine. The design of KOBE IX ELITE can be combined with different yarns and fibers to match the ever-changing weaving techniques, imparting a sense of art and creating a gorgeous color. But at the same time greatly reducing the elasticity of FLYKNIT material, completely different from FLYKNIT uppers on running shoes, KOBE IX ELITE is obviously tougher, providing support for multi-directional foot activities.

When careful attention is paid to the FLYKNIT on the shoes, it is not difficult to find its weaving patterns. In order to provide support, KOBE IX ELITE applies different weaving methods and multiple layers of FLYKNIT at different locations to provide natural movement for the feet. However, when I was wearing for the first time, the upper was hard and I felt slightly uncomfortable in the flexed position. However, after the warm-up of the upper, it became slightly soft and the discomfort gradually disappeared.

The FLYKNIT in KOBE IX ELITE is the focus of the whole pair of shoelaces. Many people think that these Jordan shoes only have a gorgeous appearance; the design uses a multi-layer weaving method to combine different fiber materials to make the back of the shoe body more visible. See the black mesh structure and add support points to the shoe body.

If only relying on FLYKNIT uppers to provide the stability and support ability of the feet, I believe that the efficiency is not enough; the designer specially designed 6 sets of FLYWIRE on the shoe body, using the shoelaces as a fixed point to increase the supportability. When tightening shoelaces, the upper naturally fits the feet and brings out a stable effect, achieving the concept of "Nature Amplified".

The best part of FLYKNIT technology is lightweight and breathable. The soft FLYKNIT body gives a feeling of wearing like a sock. This is what the designer wants KOBE IX ELITE to feel.

KOBE IX ELITE is indeed very thin, able to shape the lightweight body, but the shape imitates the design of the boxing boots, has a very high shoe tube, increasing the overall weight; and the FLYKNIT in the body using multi-layer weaving technology, unfortunately, repeated weaving Yarn and fiber make FLYKNIT appear tight, so KOBE IX ELITE is not like FLYKNIT running shoes can be set in a number of mesh breathable mouth, only relying on the tongue on the vent hole slightly insufficient, breathability is no different from the general basketball shoes, This is a bit eclipsed.

FLYKNIT creates a thinner upper for the KOBE IX ELITE, which also reduces the stress on the feet. The usual size allows you to provide comfortable and fit results.


The previously launched FLYKNIT shoes, it is not difficult to detect the breathable mesh side of the cheap Air Jordans shoes, if you want to improve the design of FLYKNIT basketball shoes, improve ventilation is indispensable. There is no doubt that most FLYKNIT shoes can give the impression of wearing socks, but KOBE IX ELITE is difficult to provide this feeling; Support is very important for basketball shoes, so KOBE IX ELITE FLYKNIT design is also relatively hard , Although it can provide a completely fitting effect, it is difficult to bring the ultimate natural feeling. I can only describe it as a pair of very admirable basketball shoes. Perhaps the future FLYKNIT technology will be improved to bring players a real natural feeling.
