The Nike Kobe 9 looks to be the last of the next generation signature silhouettes to release from Nike Basketball thanks to the re-arranging of release dates. Looking to arrive ahead of that next full step is this, a new takedown model from Kobe Bryant’s Nike line. There’s no telling exactly which model we’re looking at, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it was the next in the Nike Venomenon line. See the shoes, as spotted at a retail set up in China, again after the click and tell us if you like how the model is shaping up.

Kobe shoes with Nike has always been a great concept for a basketball shoe even with it being low cut. Here NIke/Kobe take my money, I need a pair.
I'm expecting this.
Kobe line is slowly coming back to it's now-iconic Kobe VI overall conceptual design.
The only missing piece is what snakeskin texture could topple the VI.
Take down model? The materials used on this shoe look far more durable than the bullshit that Nike used on the Kobe 8....but then again, they realize that the people who are stupid enough to buy this guy's shoes, really do not know any better anyway.
