We’re in the middle of a slew of Kobe 9 Elite releases, but are you ready for the Low? Here’s a first look at the Nike Kobe 9 Low in a Yellow/Black/Red colorway; there are some obvious elements that carry over from the high-top Elite, but the Kobe 9 Low makes use of Engineered Mesh with targeted vents at the mid-foot rather than Flyknit. Also seen is the nine strikes at the heel, the new midsole design, and the same outsole traction inspired by Kobe’s foot map. These currently have a tentative release date of March 29th with a retail price of $160, but stay tuned to Sneaker News for the latest info on the Kobe 9 Low and you’ll be first to know.

Nike Kobe 9 EM Low
Color: University Gold/Laser Crimson-Black
Release Date: 03/29/14
would have been much better if they used the flynit like da highs..not bad though better then da highs imo
@Eccroids i thought they were tryna go for the "bruce lee" look
They were 140 but da last 2 Kobe 8 releases were 160... And isn't dat expected. All Nike products go up every yr... Jordan's, KDs, Lebrons, Kobes, air max, NIKE ID...
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite i expect a increase but i thought it wouldve been 5 or 10$....
For all that don't know there are two versions of the kobe 9 low that are gonna release but pictures haven't surfaced yet. I believe they will retail for $200+
@Kev Loco YEAH AWHILE BACK BEFORE THE ELITES CAME UP
Nike is making Kobe fans pay out of their asses, especially since they are the only ones who'll buy his crap. Nike has to make up for the losses somehow.
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite Think we should just start flagging him, because he only comments on Kobe pages
@greg12345 yea it does. especially with no flyknit.
I like em there coo...But definitely agree with most they need to keep the flynit going and make em low! Wtf is Nike thinking its almost like they just toy with us comsumers and than drop some dope ahit thats super limited and nobodys gonna touch it on release day! Than we go blow paper on bitch ass Ebay!!! Step your game up Nike you duckheads! Yall know what your doing to us!!!
@Tstewie maybe u didnt read....
These aren't elite versions for those of you asking... no carbon fiber no flyknit these have tpu instead
They should have went with flyknit and cut the ankles off on the upper instead of using engineer mesh. I like this Bruce Lee colorway though
Way too plain bruh! I'll keep my money, Nike Zombies can have these! I'd rather wear that damn shoe that James harden wears before these! Only way I'd buy another Kobe is if they slap iD on Nike for the elite! These joints ain't even better than the hyperdunks! I'd buy some 2014 air max before I bought these no matter what colorway they drop! I can keep naming better shoes than these! Of course the kd vi elite kill these, hell the regular kd vi is better than this plain crap. I'd double up on the Kings pride before I bought a Kobe 9 low
@tef21 Tuck the ankle part into the shoe. It feels normal.
@DocBill1 do you hoop? Can you hoop with em like that or will they pop out? I bought a pair of maestros they come tomorrow I have the inspirations but havent played with them or tried tucking them yet...
Not that bad but this color way sucks way too much yellow may in another color but for now the kobe 9 high still loke better but the question which one would be in the easter pack if there is one
I'll stick to owning 1 pair of elites! That's it for me, I'm tired of giving Nike money for the same $^!+
