Nike Kobe 9 Elite Officially Unveiled

After great anticipation, the Nike Kobe 9 has officially been unveiled by Nike Basketball. Kobe Bryant’s ninth Swoosh signature is a high-top sneaker that wraps the ankle and features three key Nike technologies: Nike Flyknit, Flywire and Lunarlon. First used in running shoes, the Kobe 9 features Flyknit that is made from single strands of yarn to move with your foot. Nike Basketball‘s patented Flywire locks down the midfoot, and Lunarlon provides responsive cushioning. A carbon fiber heel counter gives the shoe stability, and a pressure mapping designed rubber outsole mimics the natural contours of the foot to finish off the most innovative basketball sneaker to date. Tell us what you think of the KB 9′s daring design in the comment section at the bottom of the page, and prepare yourself for the February 8th release date of the inaugural colorway, the Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Masterpiece” for $225.

    These are too dope for words. I knew this line was going to come in and save the day from those other two lame signatures (imo). Expected nothing less though, they’re always pushing the boundaries with this line.
