It’s time to divert your attention away from the new Flyknit-uppered Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM, because there are some great EM joints to get a look at. The Kobe 9 EM is seen here in PE form with classic Lakers uniform threads done in gradient fashion. While Flyknit may be the trendier material for Nike, Engineered Mesh certainly holds its own when it comes to dazzling us with amazing color compositions. Your thoughts on EM vs. Flyknit?
