When the Kobe 8 was still young, Nike Basketball released their “Count on Kobe” video, which had the model slithering around as an extension of the snake theme often caught up in Kobe’s shoes. Just over a year later they’ve released this spot, which features the upcoming Nike Kobe 9 Elite in reptilian form before it eventually morphs into the sneaker that’s releasing this weekend. Continue reading to see the “Masterpiece” video and tell us in the comments if you’re purchasing the Kobe 9 Elite.
So nike will make Kobe's limited so they can sell out all the time. A damn shame how nike uses hype over design to stay popular.
very dope video..we need pics of the flyknit mid-low version at this point and do we have a tent RD on that model or is that later in the year??
From the looks of things if there is going to be a mid it will be engineered mesh like the Kobe 8 and not flyknit. My guess is flyknit will only be found on the elite version.
My thoughts.... There may be a low, but those mid pictures are bogus! The Kobe 9 elite is the regular version. Just like the Kobe 8 system, the word system is replaced with the word elite. Nike always does an elite series, yes I know this. The elite series normally drops right before playoffs and with his dropping feb. 8 I just don't see these being in the elite pack. Has anyone seen the box yet for these?
I seen that all black mid.... It was such a long time ago. That model was rumored to be scrapped, according to Nike.
Naw man there was a photo of the kobe 9 mids EM in all black...there will be mids in fly knit also..the mids won't release until fall I think...at least that was what the date on them said. But there will be mids in both versions and lows. They said they were going have fun with it so I guess it means take everybodys money by slamming us with dope colorways in lows, mid, and high.the high I doubt will be more colorways besides the ones we saw already. That's a guess though because they never make many colorways of the elites
That mid photo was actually a photo of the Kobe 9 elite Masterpiece kicks folded over or folded inside the shoe.
