Some may call this pair of Nike Kobe 9 EM South Beach, but we will stick to calling them Dusty Cactus. Whatever you call them, we have the official release date.
Breaking down the shoes, the Kobe 9 EM shown features a dusty cactus mesh upper, action red hits the eyelets, Kobe signature on the midsole and the opposite side of the tongue. White accents the Swoosh, laces and outsole.
If you look at the tongue a new patch is used that features 5 gold stars (rings?), Bryant’s logo, the Black Mamba snake and written is “Black Mamba” and “Kobe Bryant 24”. This makes us believe that they are a special release, so we may have another nickname coming soon.
Releasing October 3rd 2014 for $175.
