Nike unveiled the new Kobe 9 shoes at The Museum of Contemporary Art on Wednesday, December 4th. The 9 is the first shoe in the Kobe line that is a high top and to feature Nike’s Flyknit to keep it light.
Another very cool piece added to the Kobe 9 are red lines on the back of the shoe symbolizing Kobe’s torn Achilles injury. This will mean a lot when Kobe laces his shoes tonight as he returns from his injury against the Toronto Raptors!
The Nike Kobe 9 will release February 8th for a retail price of $225!
