The Nike Kobe 9 EM in the University Gold/Black-Laser Crimson colorway will release on March 29th. This debut release will kick off the second version of the Kobe 9 signature model, featuring a lower-cut stance and an upper constructed with Engineered Mesh. The unique material has already shown its versatility with colorways as the Kobe 8 was a very successful signature model, but it all starts with this clean Lakers-inspired version. It’ll hit stores like Eastbay with a retail price of $160, so check out these detailed photos and stay tuned to Sneaker News for the latest in Kobe 9 releases.
Nike Kobe 9 EM
Color: University Gold/Black-Laser Crimson
Style Code: 646701-700
Release Date: 03/29/14
Fa me, I have bought 4 pair of Kobe 9 Elites. So can't see myself buyin more then 2 pair of lows... Da elites are so comfortable & makes feels like ur walkin on a cloud... I did see a blkac/red cw I was interested in but da elites are a much better shoe. & u get ur moneys worth wit da flyknit & carbon fiber
these not touching the elites. missing carbon fiber, no flynit or the torch tongue. they short changed the low. i hope they dont drop a low elite with those features added. then id say nike is on that bs
cheaper looking versions of the kobe 8s... plus TPU instead of carbon fiber..
then they jack up the price a bit for these compared to the 8s. smh lol
These ill cop. Always like the lows for kobe. Something bout those high tops I just couldn't get into. But outta respect for the kobe V and the "Dragon", ima cop these. They got that Bruce Lee, Enter the Dragon V's look that I'm feelin'! WAA-TAAAAAAA muthafuckas!
Those elites turn heads from old age, middle age, and young age. I have so many people asking me about em (Inspiration, detail). I'm glad that they are limited in numbers, that means that I won't see em all the time. I have my children decked out in the elites (masterpiece and purple venom joints), Nike even threw some lunarlon in the gs joints! I can't say enough about the Kobe 9 elite, it's super nice. You are right about walking on a cloud, but I say walking on marshmallows
They may not be "touching" the elites but that's exactly why I want them. I think the elites are horrible looking. Great shoe but nothing most people look right wearing. I'll gladly take the lows for $70 cheaper and the ability to look good wearing them. The elites look like the boots Missy and Ciara had on in 1, 2 step video
@yesyesyesyesyes every states that they run big
@yesyesyesyesyes about a 1/2 small.
Da elites look good wearin them if u got da right fit on...plus flyknit & carbon fiber cost money. So fa 225, ur actually gettin ur moneys worth compared to EM like da Kobe 8s
