Kobe 9 Em

The Nike Kobe 9 Gets a Low-Top Release

The release of the high-topped Kobe 9 Elite broke the streak of five consecutive low-top Kobe Bryant releases from Nike. This weekend however, Black Mamba’s line will return to a low-top look with the Nike Kobe 9 EM. The low-top shoe features a lightweight “University Gold” mesh upper which sits atop a Lunarlon midsole. Missing from the Nike Kobe 9 EM, however, is any trace of Flyknit technology, which was the Kobe 9 Elite’s signature trademark.

The Kobe 9 Elite EMs come out this Saturday in stores and at Nike.com.

    Love this shoe, the price is ridiculous though(pricing in basketball overall is ridiculous at the moment, and purely based on warping the consumer’s perception), it’s the same shoe as the Kobe 8, so it should’ve been a 130-140 shoe.
