Product images of an upcoming Nike Kobe AD 360 FF have leaked online that, thanks to its colorway, have prompted comparisons to a previously-released Nike sneaker. The internet is comparing the sneaker to Virgil Abloh’s Serena Williams-inspired Off-White™ x Nike Blazer Mid.
Both sneakers feature a gradient midsole that fades from purple to pink, as well as a predominantly grey upper. The Swoosh on both shoes is oversized and overlaps the midsole. Lime green detailing is present at the heel and on the lacing system of the Kobe AD 360 FF, while it was present on the zip tie and heel on the Off-White™ collab.

@nike's upcoming Kobe AD 360 FF shares quite a few similarities with Serena Williams’ “Queen” Blazer. ?⠀ ⠀ The most obvious feature that these two share is the gradient pink & purple midsole. Other things in common include the oversized Swooshes that drop down into the midsole, as well as vivid neon accents through the more muted colors. The new Kobe AD 360 FF is rumored to be dropping on November 8. #hskicks ⠀
Nike has a tendency to reuse colorways on other silhouettes, most notably with some of its most iconic colorways but sometimes, as is the case here, also pulling from hyped collaborations and re-appropriating contemporary and limited-edition color schemes.
