With the Nike KD VI already hitting stores and images of LBJ’s newest sneaker, the Nike LeBron XI, having leaked for a while now, people have wondered when we’d get a glimpse of the next signature Nike Kobe sneaker; well, today is that day, as we bring you a look at an all-black wear test sample of what is being called the Nike Kobe IX (9) EM Low, courtesy of @Jcenky (a guy I suggest you follow if you’re interested in all things sneakers) . While the shoe shares some similarities with the recent signature sneaks we’ve seen from Kobe’s line, this is most definitely a step in a new direction, with a mid-top design and carbon fiber plating on the midsole. Keep in mind that this is a wear test sample, so the finished product might look completely different. We’ll keep you posted on any and all info on the upcoming Kobe IX, so definitely keep it locked with Sneaker Files for all your sneaker-related needs.
