In celebration of the spectacular Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM release in Milan, the Swoosh commissioned an awe-inspiring display created by Arthur Huang.  This Flyknit Aero-Static Dome is on display in Milan’s Palazzo Clerici, with the Kobe 9 Elite Low shown in 9 illuminated glass cases, each of which connects to the hovering dome by way of colorful Flyknit strands.  This installation inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s triangular parachute and Alexander Graham Bell’s tetrahedral kite is completely free-floating and secured to the ground by the same material that makes up the Kobe 9 Elite‘s featherweight upper.  Click in for a closer view and let us know if this piece commissioned for Milan Fashion Week 2014 is Nike’s best yet.

Ever since Nike Basketball introduced its Elite series of post-season models, gold has been part of the equation. Instead of being the first pairs to the party this year, the “Gold Collection” hops in line at a later point – they’ll be releasing on June 6th, 2014. As you can see, the KD 6 Elite Gold and the Kobe 9 Elite Gold end up with a white base while the LeBron 11 Elite Gold has sort of an “Away” feel due to the darker tones. Take a look at all three after the break and tell us in the comments which of these Nike Basketball Elite series pairs, which will be the last of this year’s Elites barring any sort of Championship pairs, you’re feeling the most.

nike kobe 9 elite low new releases 1 More Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low Releases Are On The Way

Early this morning, Sneaker News gave you a first look at Nike Basketball’s latest unveil – the Kobe 9 Elite Low. Releasing in four HTM-derived colorways in very limited numbers, the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low offers up a third option for enthusiasts of the Black Mamba’s shoes. However, with the HTM colorways being available in just two locations in Milan, you likely missed out on these quick drop releases (and they’re done for good), but don’t worry – Nike confirms that different colorways are definitely on the way. They will certainly be much more available than today’s Europe-only product, and like the earlier Kobe 9 Elite releases, expect a rich inspiration behind each exciting design. Stay tuned to Sneaker News for more on the Kobe 9 Elite Low because we’ll be first to give you a heads up when these upcoming drops come to light.
