A throwback to Kobe Bryant's first true superstar moment as a pro, adidas will reissue the EQT Elevation in the months ahead.
Returning to retail for the first time since its 1997 launch, the Feet You Wear classic is pictured below in the original Black/White and Dunk Contest Purple colorways. Minus a few subtle differences, the details are mostly true to the original. Holograms are positioned on the tongue and ankle. Microlite stripes are worked into the design of the shoe. Straps wrap the heel for added support. A molded EVA midsole works with traditional FYW tooling below.
No official release date or pricing information to reveal at the moment, but stick with Sole Collector for updates. Also check out our recent Throwback Thursday post for a look back at the original EQT Elevation.
