The best part of being a kid is your wild imagination. There are tons of superheroes to imitate anything you can imagine. Seeing your favorite basketball player dominate an NBA game can make you feel like they are heroes on the hardwood.
Even though Kobe Bryant was out of commission in the 2013/2014 season, his career has created a legacy for his name. Though he cannot destroy his opponents with laser beams from his eyes, his court vision seems to slow down the game. With the game in a much slower pace, he can pick apart the defense and create opportunities to score with finesse and master craftsmanship.
The Nike Elite Basketball Series also presents the “Hero Collection” for LeBron James and newly crowned 2014 NBA MVP: Kevin Durant. In this series, the Kobe 9 Elite High gets a light grey makeover with hues of blue, purple, and yellow spread all over. Staying consistent with the other Elite Highs, the shoes will feature the same soles that replicate the bottom of your feet to allow the best traction available. You can also expect the FlyKnit material and carbon fiber to make up most of the shoe.
These will be available for online purchase on Friday, I repeat Friday May 9, 2014 for the retail price tag of $225. If you love the colorway but are having doubts about the shoe’s performance, check out our Kobe 9 Elite performance review. Everything between traction and ventilation is discussed to help you make the best choice possible.
