While Kobe Bryant remains retired from professional basketball and has no plans of coming back to the NBA (no matter how much the Lakers struggle), his Nike signature sneaker line is still going strong.

In addition to the Kobe 1 Protro and the rumored Kobe 4 retros, Nike continues to churn out new colorways of his most recent signature - the Kobe AD

The upcoming "Racer Blue" Nike Kobe AD features a black base accompanied by a range of eye-catching colors including volt, crimson and purple. Additional details include the speckled grey midsole and a translucent outsole.

The kicks are expected to release this Sunday, January 13 for the standard Kobe AD retail price of $140.
