Are we looking at the Nike Kobe 9 NSW Lifestyle? It’s natural to expect a sequel to last year’s Kobe 8 NSW after the LeBron 10 progressed to 11 and a KD 6 NSW joined them for this new season. And now that we know the Kobe 9 Elite is rocking a super hightop silhouette, it makes sense that this design pictured above would be its casual counterpart. Stick with Sneaker News for details and release info, but for now let’s examine what we do know. This hightop silo looks like a modernized take on some of the Swoosh’s mid 1980s hoop shoes, but judging from the ‘Prelude’-ish marble midsole, it’s possible these could be drawing on the same era of Kobe’s storied career as well. Let us know your first opinion after you’ve sen more photos below; are you feeling what appears to be one of exceedingly few uses of patent leather on a Nike Kobe shoe?
These are weird, in a bad way. So many cool design elements, but they look thrown together IMO. Like a Nikeid where i just clicked random stuff. I'd like to see more cws because the silhouette is ok.
Just because you guys threw marble on the Prelude II and people hyped over them, doesn't mean you can go doing it to the rest of his shoes... Pass
@Damien_IS oulalala elles sont ignobles
@OGMANET aha on s'en fout: REGARDE LE MARBRE!
@Damien_IS ouais c'est le seul élément cool c'est bien vu
