Kobe Bryant Practices in Nike Kobe 9 Elite
Good news: Kobe Bryant is back in practice. On top of that he’s out of the Kobe 8 and into the Kobe 9 Elite. Before this week’s big media launch (We trust you saw our extensive coverage of the events) Bryant was seen at the Lakers facility wearing the Nike Kobe 9 Elite-the colorway in question being a little bit more muted than that “Masterpiece” look. Could this one be coming to retail as well, or is it just one of those pre-retail blackout versions we’ve seen so many times before? Stay tuned with Sneaker News to find out the answer to that and take a full look at Kobe Bryant wearing the Kobe 9 after the click.
Look like they incorporated mid ankle socks into his shoe. I bet he's not wearing lows in game's anymore and busts out these super high top's from now on to keep his achilles from tearing again.
So this simp' is ready come back, albeit in a pair of hybrid Manny Pac Man boots. Too bad he didn't have these on when Chris Childs chin checked him a few years ago. Now all those bitch asses on Nike Talk are going to have to find some other excuse, for saying lows are just as safe as mids and highs, in order to sell this bullshit shoe.
@Longstroke don't you get tired of all your negativity? most of the time all you do is hate and talk shit on this site.. smh
Supposedly they've been working on these prior to his injury, so im not sure that is the reason for the height.. check out the interview with Eric Avar
