With all the buzz surrounding the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low, it’s easy to overlook the engineered mesh counterpart and yet the Swoosh continues to give us some enticing offerings of the more affordable silhouette with a bevy of prints and patterns for late summer. Next week we’ll get an added vibrant dose of the Kobe 9 EM in this Bright Mango rendition, one that features an overlay of some exotic fauna to fawn over. And while Kobe’s 9th signature sneaker will be one defined more by what was seen off the court for the Black Mamba rather than the memories of what he did while wearing them, with releases like these it’s easy to see the Kobe line carrying on post-retirement. The Nike Kobe 9 EM “Bright Mango” will launch Thursday, August 28th at 8AM EDT, but know that you can always secure your pair on eBay.
