Let’s not forget though that there’s already a low style up for grabs: the Nike Kobe 9 EM Low. And not only are they at retail now, they’re also available on that ultimate footwear customization platform that is NIKEiD.

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.

It’s time to divert your attention away from the new Flyknit-uppered Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM, because there are some great EM joints to get a look at. The Kobe 9 EM is seen here in PE form with classic Lakers uniform threads done in gradient fashion. While Flyknit may be the trendier material for Nike, Engineered Mesh certainly holds its own when it comes to dazzling us with amazing color compositions. Your thoughts on EM vs. Flyknit?

The number of Kobe 9 models will increase with the upcoming Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM release, a silhouette that was crafted in part by the likes of the legendary Hiroshi/Tinker/Mark team up. As you can see, the silhouette maintains the Flyknit touches that the Nike Kobe 9 Elite brought, but has a lower cut that’s much more in line with what the public has come to expect from a Nike Kobe sneaker. Continue reading for the full breakdown on the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low and watch for the HTM version to launch exclusively at Nike Stadium Milano and Excelsior in Milan on April 8th (Look for more standard inline pairs of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low in the future as well).
