“Snakeskin” Nike Kobe 9 Elite

September 29th, 2014 by | No comments

snakeskin nike kobe 9 high ext 02 570x425 Snakeskin Nike Kobe 9 Elite

Remember the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Snakeskin pair that popped up on the feet of Mrs. Mamba a couple weeks back? The latest round of info and photos on them suggests that the sneakers are indeed headed for a retail release in the future. The apparent box tag on these is rather interesting, as the markings there suggest that the shoe is technically of the Nike Kobe 9 High EXT persuasion. That designation is a new one, but it makes sense that these wouldn’t qualify as earning the “Elite” banner without the Flyknit bits. See another shot of them below and check back in on Sneaker News for release info.

It’s not often we look back at earlier Kobe models, but for this Throwback Thursday, let’s take a look at this early wear-test sample of the game-changing Nike Zoom Kobe IV.

This colorway of the Kobe 4 is certainly new, but take a look at the details and you’ll notice the bulging swoosh, the “4″ on the tongue, and the altered ankle collar. Where does the Kobe 4 rank among the best Nike Kobes ever? Peep the full photo below and give us your thoughts on this rare sample.

Considering many believe the Kobe 9 Elite to have a bit of a high-fashion element to it, the NSW Lifestyle route is a great fit – and this Snakeskin pair is a perfect example. What do you think?
