As more colorways of the Kobe 9 EMs are releasing, we must not forget about the high top version. With the Kobe 9 Elite “Influence”, Nike is making sure that doesn’t happen. With official pictures coming from House of Hoops Paris, expect to see sneaker heads with their hands on these on April 1st. Unfortunately, for those of us in North America without a European connect, we currently don’t have word on a US / Canada release yet.
The “Influence” sports an artistic print like the “Perspectives” but with an even louder mixture of colors. We get a mix of teal, yellow, orange, and volt for the upper to go with a clean white swoosh. Its vibrant colors are a lock to break necks. Yes, these will sport the same Flyknit technology as we’ve seen with its previous colorways.
Look to stay informed with Kicksologists as we’ll update you with any news of a North American release.
