Nike Kobe 9 Mid EXT Snakeskin

[new_royalslider id=”335″]

If you would have told me last year that there would be four different models of the Kobe 9, I would call you crazy.  At this point we can expect Nike Basketball to release a lifestyle EXT version for their BIG 3 atheletes, Lebron James, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant.  The EXT models of the BIG 3 hasn’t been as popular as Nike initially wanted, but this new Kobe 9 EXT has gotten much attention in the social media.

Here we have a look at the first Kobe 9 EXT being dubbed “Snakeskin”.  A full-on leather upper returns in snake skin form for the first time since the Kobe 6.  The upper features a black synthetic leather upper with a beautiful gummed out outsole.  Some may not like the height of the tongue on this one as it sits higher than normal, but I personally dig it.  Being a casual friendly model, Nike decided to leave out the carbon fiber side panels and replace it with TPU for a more off-court look.  We are unsure if a drop-in Lunarlon insert will be provided with this model so stay tuned here for more info on that.  This will be the last rendition of the Kobe 9 as the Elite, EM Low, and Elite Low are available now.

At a premium price of $225.00 USD, the Nike Kobe 9 EXT QS will drop on August 28th at most Nike retailers.  Let us know below if you are expecting these to be part of your collection.
