Basketball fans can’t wait for Kobe Bryant to get back on court, but style gurus must admit he’s pretty dapper on the sideline. The Nike Kobe 9 Lifestyle “Year of the Horse” offers an off-court kick inspired by his prominent performance line. Pony hair is prevalent on this Zodiac colorway, making itself known on the main mid-foot panel. Embossed lines stamp the toe box, while 3M hits the heel. A speckled midsole also proves flashy, only to be one-upped by a glow-in-the-dark outsole. The Nike Kobe 9 Lifestyle “Year of the Horse” launches tomorrow at shopnicekicks.com.
