We recently unearthed the core concept of the upcoming Masterpiece release of the Kobe 9 to be the Joker-inspired “Chaos” colorway that first debuted with the Nike Zoom Kobe IV. What else is there to know on these Kobe shoes? For one, the Flyknit upper makes each and ever pair truly unique from the next. This Energy release will be limited to some degree, so don’t expect these to hit a high amount of retailers in mass units. Finally, the Kobe 9 will run you $225, which makes up for the most expensive Kobe retail release yet. Enough about facts – there’s a nice detailed gallery of the Nike Kobe 9 right here, so continue on and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates on this February 8th release.
Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Masterpiece”
Release Date: 02/08/14
Why are the Kobe's so limited???!!!??? Why the keep mass producing these garbage ass Lebron's every year!
I like the low version a whole lot bitter, even though in my opinion the lows look more like a mid. These high-versions are a no go, though.
@ShadCity the bottom portion is nice but once you get to the upper part....I can't do it
@sneakernews like the current laker season, coach, and players. Those shoes are trash
Ball only? Ugly? Easy cop. Like bron11 and kd6 ima have mine early then u lames will be in line for the 4th release with ya girl wanting a pair too. Like kobes designer is bad or something. Flyknit ball shoes speaks for itselk. Ppl are scared by what they dont understand
Sneakergame all gone to shit. Kobes $225. Lebons $200. Crappy retro Jordans $190. What the hell! People now need bots to cop kicks online and in Nike stores. And Sneaker News, you're on some bullshit greed with this 2 pics per page crap; that seriously is annoying.
I love sneakers, but my God, someone gots to stop all this noise!
No matter what people say are fu..ING ugly for that price better buy the grey neón camo foampsss . This look like skies shoes .
@sneakernews that tounge fucks the shoe up in the bad way.
@run_zombie_run I love the shoe as a whole. Love Kobe specs but I can't do lows so this high option is on my radar heavy.
@135_ENT yeah you gonna see some manpris start coming into ppls rotation
@Og lopez kicks your a dumbass these are for preformance not to look good and the foamposites are casual not for preformance
@alcstarheel confetti ass sneakers have you looking like Souljah Boy
@Antbeck1 them hoes ugly AF real nigga shit. And his hoe ass better be out there ballin when I see the lakers play
@qtbigwatts both colors.
@HeatSeeker9 flyknit has more breathability than mesh so that won't happen.
@HeatSeeker9 its a basketball shoe not personal outgoing fashion statement. But to each its own
@run_zombie_run they look like they are higher than the pumps that the admiral wore, but shorter than the MAGS,
@thequixote I ain't about the color so much as the shoe itself. I wouldn't get this colorway but the colorway potential is going to be crazy
@LewisLevelle when u gon
It's sad and pitiful that Nike would lie about color. When they unveiled this Masterpiece the official colors stated were red, volt, purple, and of course black... Maannnn I'm seriously blowed! I wanted these joints.... #homosexualagendacontinues
@alcstarheel I'd take em in all black monochrome lol
@LewisLevelle @Antbeck1 LMAO
@Antbeck1 you cutting deep bruh..ok..ok when I go out to the game I'll shot an arrow for Kobe's achilles on some Troy shit...
@LewisLevelle I'm gonna get that towel that cam newton wears on his head and piss on it then punch coach k in the face
@Antbeck1 dope, if I can I'll get a autograph from Kobe and make sure vine me ripping that shit up
@LewisLevelle niceee rondo will b back too
@Antbeck1 feb 28 when they play boston, got box office on some Gucci shit
