I believe the Kobe 9's are the last great basketball shoes. While it's great that Jordan Brand introduced the Air Jordan XX8's, and are giving us retro's that we need in the collection, the team at NSW are making history with new designs, newer technology, and incorporating a level of GREATNESS that explodes into a Top-Shelf pair of kicks. The Kobe 9's are done with careful precision, and the detail is parallel to no other.
Combining FlyKnit, FlyWire, LunarLon, and Carbon Fiber to create the perfect basketball sneaker has never been done before. They've all stood on their own, respectively, but to bring them all together for a masterfully done creation is one for the record books.
At first glance, the Kobe 9's look like a boxing shoe, which Kobe credits to watching Manny Paquiao. Drawing energy from boxing, and his own injury, Nike cooked up a pair of kicks that rivals all others beneath it.
The Kobe 9's are available now, in select colorways, at all Nike retailers. Get up and grab a pair. Don't let this opportunity pass you by! Cali "O" #TeamKickGame
