The Nike Kobe 9 EM, also known up to this point as the Nike Kobe 9 Low, will release on March 29th according to Foot Locker. The first up colorway will be that university gold/laser crimson/black version with the “Bruce Lee” vibe that’s been the most present as far as preview pics are concerned. We know you’re not satisfied with just that pair though, so here’s a bigger crop of pairs to expect as soon as this lower (No Merion) Kobe launches. Get familiar with the Kobe 9 EM after the click and then tell us in the comments if you like how this upcoming Kobe Nike shoe is shaping up.
Nike Kobe 9 EM
Color: University Gold/Laser Crimson-Black
Style Code: 646701-600
Release Date: 03/29/14
Smh... Looks exactly like the 8s with different cheaper pattern looks. Guess they were out of ideas. Why dont they change the design like the Lebrons 11. Truly disappointed -_-
I like these, the yellow and black and blk/grey/red arent bad...this a regular price one..if they made with carbon fiber and flyknit they would go at 185-190$(a price good for elite mid if they'll release imo)
so there will be also an elite mid with flinikt like pics that leaaked a while ago in Masterpiece cw? I'd like that
So that ankle/calf support thing on the Elites is worth 65 bucks? I'd actually get a pair of these if it weren't for the $160 price tag.
I don't kno why everybody complainin... These are nice. If u want da flyknit, then buy da elite pair. If they put flyknit on da lows they would cost probably 180 to 190 range. So fa 160 EM should of been expected... Coppin da Bruce Lee lookin pair & dat Blk/red so far... Other 2 are jus ok. Nice spring cws tho
I want flynit lows. But I do not want to spend 200 f*ckin dollars on them either. I love my Kobes...I guess I will keep dream for my wish to come true
These are so terrible w/ EM. I like the Elite's. The flyknit is great on them, and I was actually hoping it would carry over to the Low's. Guess not. These look like Lunarglides w/o flyknit.
Perfect example of how u can't please everyone. "Ooo it's too high I want lows why nike?! And then they release the lows "ooo it's too simple I want flyknit!" It's like shut up dumbasses if y'all don't like the design by now nothing's gonna change your mind. You don't have to like it and that's ok.
I'm pretty sure that the only Kobes of the line that have snake patterns were the 6&8...everyone acts like you can't have any design on the Engineered Mesh. Stop complaining. Flyknit is cool but EM is what made us all fall in love with the 8s. Remember?...lol
Ps RETRO KOBES 4'S ALREADY THE DEL SOLS, MLPS, MLK, BREDS, 4 RINGS ALL THAT YOU BASTAAAAAADS NIKE!!!
Wtf is with these homo ass flamboyant colorways??? Why in the fuck does Lebron get all the simple colorways keep it simple Nike! Whoever is in charged at Nike needs to fire some of you bitch ass designers! You Fucking wierdos keep creating bs off the wall designs looking like a lava lamp on shrooms! You assholes give Lbj all the dope cw's while Kd and Kobe get trash! Simple you Fucking morons! 1 out of ten you make is ok the other ones are trippy as fuck! Make the maestros, masterpiece, inspiration ect lows and bring more heat like that!
I like these better than the 8s...the 8s kinda looked like a GS version of the 7s...just my imo no hate.
This shoes are the same concept from last ones with exeption of the flynit Shit. Are gona be expesives!!!!!!!!!! Only for have the Kobe name in it.
Guess I will be getting a low pair.... Black and red it is! The rest of em look like some girly $^!+
Now were talking between the purple blue orange or green and blue are these limited and will they the same price 160 if they got graphics
I wonder if the lows will made in the same limited quantities as the Elite Kobe 9's because the lows will sell well. I'd hate for these to be limited too.
So, Nike decided to forgo the serpent look for Kobe's shoe, so I guess they went the Coogi route this time around.
I'd love to see a low or mid made the same as the highs because they'd be sick. Can't see how they wouldn't do it.
@fearfactz these color ways are sick and these don't look like the 8
Shut up. You type like an idiot. Take that over to Nike Talk.
It's probably elephant print. Maybe that Michael Jordan inspired one. I wonder what the Michael Jackson inspired on is going to look like?
Dat Blk & red pair go hard yo... And its got some kinda cement on da arch support. Very dope... I'm feelin dat Bruce Lee lookin pair too. Maybe Cuz I got da Bruce Lee kobe kicks
@Longstroke That's because last year (2013) was Year of the Snake.
