We first heard rumors that this pair of Nike Kobe 9 Elites would be the Christmas day kicks. Not long after sources said this pair was known as Poker Ace. We are not to sure why they were dubbed the name, but news is news. Today we received an email to show us the inside of the tongue, which CONFIRMS they are Kobe’s Christmas sneakers.
A graphic was used in white stitching in the form of a snake (black mamba) that reads “Mamba’s Greetings” with a green dotted design. If this doesn’t scream Christmas we don’t know what does.
What do you think of the Christmas Kobe 9 Elite? Do you think Nike should have made some changes? Let us know below by leaving a comment.
