There’s been a lot of news surrounding the Kobe 9s as of late. Earlier this week, Nike had released the Kobe 9 EM to be customized on NIKEiD. Then, Nike had released pictures of the “Gold” Collection. Last but not least, the sudden and surprise release of the Kobe 9 Elite HTM. Even though they were only released in Milan, they sent shockwaves across the seas and around the world.
The Kobe 9 Elite “Showtime” will release as a piece of the “Team” Collection. Followed by the KD VI and LeBron 11, the “Team” Collection features their NBA team’s colors. It’s getting extremely hard to decide on which are must haves. These will release Saturday, April 12, 2014 with the retail price tag of $225 USD.
The purple and gold Flyknit should make all Lakers fan drool. Aside from the color, there are not any design differences. The shoes still stand on the carbon fiber heel support and Lunarlon cushioning.
