The Nike Hypermax was the first sneaker to introduce the NFW (No Flywire) concept at retail with the McFly and Tennis Ball releases (which have only released in Asia as of now) but, it seems that Nike Basketball tested NFW a while ago. Pics of a sample Nike Zoom Kobe IV NFW have hit the Net. The NFW Nike Zoom Kobe IV does not features Flywire and instead features a full smooth leather White upper. The rest of the NFW Nike Zoom Kobe IV features a colorway similar to the released White/Purple Nike Zoom Kobe IV.
The Nike Zoom Kobe IV NFW will most likely stay a sample and not hit retail. Read on for more.
