kobe 9 elite support Nike Kobe 9 Elite: Support

The Nike Kobe 9 Elite is a performance model crafted to the specifics of one of the greatest athletes to ever step onto the hardwood. Yes you can wear them off-court, but the design work that went into them was every bit oriented towards making the best shoe possible for Kobe. Reminding us of that fact in the lead up to the Kobe 9 Elite is Nike Basketball, who just dropped this new video referencing the support system created by the Flyknit tech. Continue reading for a look at the spot and remember that the Kobe 9 is just a couple days away.

My thoughts.... There may be a low, but those mid pictures are bogus! That mid photo was actually a photo of the Kobe 9 elite Masterpiece kicks folded over or folded inside the shoe. 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?

waiting for the flyknit mid-low version!!! high are just too high for me from a practical standpoint. 


Im not going to get these but im excited about the performance aspect of this shoe in comparison to the other flyknit releases. Especially the flyknit frees that feel wonderful but lacked the lateral support needed for basketball. Once they release the 9 lows i will be looking into buying them though. These hight on these turn me off because they remind me of some shoes/ boots some hipster chick would wear.


Meh, its still a boxing shoe. 


I would absolutely love for the "masterpieces" to not only come in a mainly black upper with the multi-color, but to have a white & multi option as well...
For now I will stick with the "Details" and keep my fingers crossed!


@qtbigwatts   there were some all black sample pictures of a lower model that didnt have a flyknit upper. It wasnt as low as past kobes.There were also some pictures @ the debut of some pictures of a lower flyknit version w/o a sole.  Who knows if any of these will drop though. I still think a more reasonable pricepoint non flyknit version would be a great option also.


Nike Kobe IX EM Low was that all black pair your talking about.... It was revealed in August of 2013. According to Nike that sample was scrapped and the model that's dropping on the 8th of February is the final product of that. Yes there will be a low, but a mid is likely not going to happen. 3 Kobe 9's??? Think about it.


@kicks67 @illustrain  
is there a source that says they will be ID'd?
find it kind of hard to believe with there only being one form of ID flyknit shoe out currently.


@kicks67 @qtbigwatts  
man that weave pattern on those are hideous....
if they drop those in that height with no revamp on the patterning I feel bad for anyone who is scared to wear high tops... 


There is definitely going to be an iD.... It's Kobe his signature has always been an iD option. Always
