The big news yesterday was the unveiling of the Nike Kobe 9 in Los Angeles (a full recap is here if you need to catch up). Right now, however, is a good time to take an in-depth look at this incredible sneaker, which is slated for a release on February 8th, 2014 at an MSRP of $225. This high-cut, Flywire-laden basketball shoe is, to date, the most advanced Kobe sneaker we’ve seen yet, and Eric Avar, a seasoned veteran in the industry of footwear design, can’t help but display unabashed excitement over the shoe. This one’s dubbed the “Masterpiece”, much like an orchestrator of grand symphonies would name his compositions, and the various details that make up the shoe only solidify the notion that the Kobe 9 sneaker is very well a work of complete art. We have a detailed look at this new sneaker right now, so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more on the Kobe 9.
