The Kobe 9 has been a hit thus far, much in part due to the great colorways that have been releasing in both Elite and EM forms. Tentatively scheduled for an early September drop is this new Kobe 9 EM Premium in a black/grey/white colorway; a new graphic print appears on the versatile Engineered Mesh upper, while a clean black/white speckled midsole adds to the pristine composition. Check out a full photo below, and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more on this upcoming Kobe sneaker release.

agree they need to stop messing around with EMs...just leave em as IDs and give us more flyknit/elite pairs, including ID materials...
What is premium about the EM???? I am confused....
I thought the Elite lows are the premium version. SMH
@GeneLin They made those Philippines premiums that were REALLY nice and they were EM. I think they basically just mean they're more rare as they're the same quality of the Bruce Lee/Easter/USA EM pairs I own.
Of course that pair had a sweet icy sole that looks like a pair of thong sandals as well as the upper going from a tribal/bead looking pattern back into his number and almost a flannel look and these are the most plain and lame pair of 9s they've made so far.
