The Nike Kobe 9 has been a sort of confusing sneaker in terms of the timeline. We say that mostly because the orientation of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite, which showed up as the first build for this ninth signature series for Kobe to release. What’s more, it has refused to fade away even with the lowtop versions out there at retail. Coming your way next week is this pair from the 2014 Nike Basketball Elite “Hero Collection” that’s got a Lakers look focusing more on the purple parts of that equation. Get a new set of images for them after the break and watch for these Kobes at spots like Social Status on May 9th.
