Stateside Nike Kobe fans got hit hard last week with the arrival of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM that looks to be a Euro exclusive. Delivering another blow later in the week was this Kobe 9 EM pair, one which we’ve so far only seen at European stockists. Surely Nike Basketball isn’t doing it to us again? This pair features a laser crimson/obsidian upper that switches between a couple of different patterns, some icy outsoles, and an unorthodox choice for the lacing. Continue reading to get familiar and keep your fingers crossed that these Kobes show up in the US.

It was another glorious year for the UCONN basketball program, as both the men’s and the women’s teams won their respective National Championships this year. A portion of that success can be ascribed to women’s Coach Geno Auriemma, who has brought the school nine championships since his arrival in 1985. Celebrating Auriemma’s success is this version of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite from customizer extraordinaire Mache Customs, commissioned by Nike. Continue reading to see Mache’s Kobe 9 creation that pays tribute to the University of Connecticut’s championship pedigree and let us know if you think they’ve perhaps earned some PE pairs at this point.

The Nike Kobe 9 EM won’t be completely overshadowed this week by the Nike Kobe Elite Low HTM, as this wild colorway has shown up at the last minute to turn some heads. The busy upper reminds us that the Engineered Mesh material is very much viable when it comes to graphics and patterns – this one being a red and blue affair with a jumbo #24 hit mixed in. Continue reading to see more on this pair with its reflective Swoosh and its icy outsole and keep in mind that select Euro spots (End Clothing and ATAF among them) will apparently launch them tomorrow, but there’s no info on a US arrival yet.

How Nike Basketball Made The 2014 Elite Series Its Best Ever

April 10th, 2014 by | 21 comments

nike basketball elite 2014 collection How Nike Basketball Made The 2014 Elite Series Its Best Ever

You don’t need to go much farther than Nike to get a straightforward example of what the essence of evolution is. Year after year, the designers at the Swoosh label continue to bring forward some of the most advanced basketball footwear designs, and the moment its primary brand competitors even begin to catch on what’s unfolding before the eyes of the consumers, Nike disrupts us (pleasantly) with something completely next-level. In 2012, Nike Basketball introduced the Elite Collection of footwear; in a landscape already dominated by the Beaverton brand, the debut of Elite sent the message that only from within could a better basketball sneaker be produced. With that said, the 2014 Elite Collection is a no-holds-barred design and innovation smorgasbord that will allow LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant to live out their sneaker fantasies. To put it briefly – LeBron, KD, and Kobe asked for it and Nike delivered, and in two days we’ll get to experience the fun for ourselves.

It goes without saying that the Kobe 9 Elite “Gold” is the least likely show to end up with some post-season play given Kobe Bryant’s current status. But let’s not forget that there have been some other athletes across the league rocking with the Nike Kobe 9 Elite, so it’s certainly possible that other colorways will be there. The sneakers will release on June 6th with the others from the Nike Basketball Elite “Gold” collection. Get another quick angle on the pair after the break and tell us which of the various Kobe silhouettes floating around at the moment you’re feeling the most.
