It’s been several months since the last Kobe 9 Elite model released. With the Lakers first pre-season game tomorrow in San Diego, Kobe Bryant and team are hoping to get a “Victory” win over the Nuggets with these 9’s on feet. Bryant has been looking good in training camp and looks to reassert his dominance on the court.
First off, the shoe sports a volt theme throughout the Flyknit upper. The venomous upper is accompanied by black and “Metallic Gold” hits all over making this model an instant classic for the line. Black snakeskin finishes the look with white bringing in some contrast. “Victory” is sketched on the inside of tongue representing all the illustrious victories in his career. Many fans would have enjoyed these in a low-top Flyknit version, but the Elite high model will be welcomed regardless.
You can purchase this pair on October 31st for $225.00 USD at major Nike retailers. The Lakers will also engage in a battle for Los Angeles as they take on the Clippers on Halloween night. As always, make sure to keep it on lock here on Kicksologsits for more performance reviews and news. Feel free to follow Kicksologist Jefferrrson on Twitter and Instagram.
