The moment all of you sneakerheads have been waiting for is finally here, the Nike Kobe 9 has officially been unveiled to the sneaker world. Sporting a sleek high-top design that wraps the ankle, the Black Mambas ninth signature shoe is also equipped with Flyknit technology along with a carbon fiber midsole. Having clearly abandoned the low-top trend that inhabited quite a few of the more recent Kobe sigs, the Nike Kobe 9 is truly a masterful creation. According to Nikes very own Heidi Burgett, the inaugural “Masterpiece” colorway for the Kobe 9 is set to hit retailers on February 8th. From the looks of the photos below, Kobe season is steadily approaching. Check out your very first official look at what’s to come and be sure to drop us a line in the comments section below.
Lead #Kobe9 colorway is called the ‘Masterpiece’. Releases globally on Feb. 8, 2014.
