Today, the Lakers finally won Kobe Bryant’s first victory after his return, narrowly winning the Bobcats 88-85. Kobe Bryant contributed 21 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds,

He also finished the game by scoring assists at the last minute. This achievement has blocked the mouth of the media to a certain extent and temporarily eased

It has put a lot of pressure on the Lakers. Is Kobe Bryant the Lakers’ tonic or poison? At least he recovered and returned to the team

Everything you can do.

I’m not a sports reporter. Naturally, I can’t analyze the relationship behind all kinds of data. Today I’m going to talk about Kobe’s shoes

Let’s talk about the Kobe 9 elite, which has attracted much attention before. It will be Kobe’s Royal boot for a long time to come

The addition of one-step lightweight upper and carbon board can be regarded as highlights, but the midsole is still the full-length Lunarlon insole,

This makes many people wonder if Nike is so stingy with the two small pieces of zoom air? Appear as elite

It’s the first time that our shoes are not equipped with air cushion. Does this prove that the Kobe series continues to go down

Where’s Poe? Let’s talk about a little bit about Kobe’s shoes.

Everyone should have the impression that when Kobe was injured last season, he wore the Kobe 8 elite just launched in the playoffs. He was in pain

I can still remember the scene of the place. The pair was originally called the topKobe 8 elite also fell to a low point in an instant, in the hearts of countless people

Left a haze.

After his comeback, except for the first game, Kobe Bryant stepped on the commemorative Zoom Kobe 1 prelude, and every game after that

Kobe Bryant was wearing a regular version of the Kobe 8 system in this game. Why not those tough shoesWhat about the Kobe 8 elite?

Many people, including some veteran sneakers, may not know the cushioning system of Kobe 8 system

There are three versions of the system.

Since the introduction of the system concept, the Kobe series is no longer called Zoom Kobe, and this classic name in our memory has disappeared

It disappeared, and the Kobe 8 system intensified. The initial version completely abandoned zoom air, which was also an example at that time

The focus of debate, the high price and the insole that doesn’t look tall have become the focus of criticism. I remember I was right

The Kobe 8 system has been evaluated for a long time: lightweight basketball shoes and poor materials; Wu Yulun

Better starting speed and less than satisfactory wrapping force.

The following two versions are targeted and strengthened on these weaknesses. The first version is added on the midsole insole

Nike + interface, a thin layer of ORTHOLITE material cushion, large volume Zoom Air in the back and no pressure in the front

There are any special cushioning materials. This version appears for the first time in the Kobe 8 All Star version, which is the heaviest of the three versions

The largest.

The second version is the full zoom air version on the Kobe 8 elite. There is a zoom air in the front and back palms to provide

Good cushioning.

Why doesn’t the returning Kobe Bryant choose these better versions of the Kobe 8? Just out of the original color

Because of the fear in my heart?

Next is the comparison of three versions of Kobe 8 insoles. The second and third versions are thicker, compressing the space of the foot in the shoe,

This is the most important point of this article. Nike has improved the cushioning of the insole, but forgot to improve the upper accordingly, the Kobe 8

The comfortable experience of Kobe Bryant disappeared in the next two versions, which has nothing to do with Kobe Bryant’s injury…
