nike kobe 9 unveil Nike to Unveil Kobe 9 on December 4th, 2013

Are you ready? Nike is. The Kobe 9 has been confirmed for an unveiling date – December 4th, 2013. It’ll go down in Los Angeles with a focus on the slogan “Where Design Meets Art”, hinting at the most stylized Kobe yet. Of course, we just showed you a mid-cut version of the Kobe 9, but based on the modular system seen in the Kobe VII and the fact that Mamba loves the Low, there could be more in store. Sneaker News will give you a first-hand recap of the Nike Kobe 9 Unveiling Event in two weeks, so keep it locked in here and stay tuned for more.

Nike Kobe 9

kobe 9 december release Nike Kobe 9

After five straight models with low-cut construction, the next Kobe shoe – the Kobe 9 – will divert from that path. This first look at the Nike Kobe 9 with a mid-cut construction certainly breaks away from what the Nike Kobe line had firmly accomplished in years prior, bringing in a fresh take on a mid-cut shoe with the boot-like build. Although it is possible that this version here is just one trim of the signature sneaker (a lower cut version may very well be available), it certainly is interesting to see Nike take on a different approach late in his career. We recently saw Kobe rock the 8 in a team practice so the added height may not even be necessary for the Black Mamba.

Aside from the form of the Kobe 9, let’s take a quick run through the obvious details; Engineered Mesh returns on the upper, giving the shell a unique appearance and some interesting colorway possibilities, and a carbon-fiber laden midsole should add even more lightweight advantages for the Lakers star as he approaches the final years of his career. In addition to the possibility of a lower cut version like that wear-test sample we showed you months ago, rumors of Flyknit on the Kobe continue to remain rampant, which deems the Kobe 9 the most technologically advanced Nike basketball shoe ever made. Stay tuned for more updates on the Nike Kobe 9 and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Nike Kobe 2 Retro

It looks like Kobe beat LeBron to the punch in the Retro category because the Nike Zoom Kobe II, Kobe Bryant’s second signature shoe with Nike, will be headed for a return next month. We’re getting a first look at a new Grey lux Retro colorway that features a marble-like graphic on the upper. A signature Retro for either Kobe and LeBron was due, but it’s surprising that it was the Mamba and not the King that got the first jump. Your thoughts on the Retro? Check out the extra photo below and stay tuned for more release dates.

Nike Zoom Huarache 2k4 – Kobe Bryant Look-See Sample

August 5th, 2013 by | 9 comments

nike zoom huarache 2k4 kobe bryant look see sample 1 Nike Zoom Huarache 2k4   Kobe Bryant Look See Sample

Kobe Bryant is so strongly connected with the Nike Zoom Huarache 2K4 that some consider it the ‘Zoom Kobe 0′. Here’s one of several colorways created for the Black Mamba, a sample in white that would be for home games with Lakers accents, except instead of purple, these go royal blue. These 2003 look-see samples further stand out from the pack of Huarache 2K4s by replacing the storied series’ swirling logo with an 8 ball-ish insignia referring to his number for the first ten NBA seasons. Check out this rarity in more images after the jump and let us know how they compare to other Kobe Zoom Huaraches we’ve seen over the years.

Kobe Bryant in Nike Kobe 8 “Milk Snake”

July 12th, 2013 by | 16 comments

The Nike Kobe 8 “Milk Snake” popped up out of nowhere yesterday, immediately registering a blip on the radar of a good lot of folks who probably aren’t used to batting an eyelash at Kobe Bryant footwear. The Black Mamba himself is one of the select few to already acquire the pair, as Kobe was seen at his own basketball camp with the anticipated pair on feet. As mentioned at their initial arrival-there’s a colorway that sounds pretty similar on the Nike release calender, but there’s not been absolute confirmation just yet that this is the same. Continue reading and chime in down in the comments section with your feelings on the “Milk Snake” Nike Kobe 8.

Kobe Bryant in Nike Kobe 8 Mid “Graffiti” PE

nike kobe 8 mid summary Kobe Bryant in Nike Kobe 8 Mid Graffiti PE

The Nike Kobe 8 continues to be the most scintillating story of the Summer months as we now get a look at a sick mid-cut PE of the Nike Kobe 8 on the man’s feet. Spotted yesterday during the Kobe Bryant Basketball Academy at UCSB, the Nike Kobe 8 Mid PE (in the “Graffiti” colorway no less) might be a special model just for Kobe as he continues to heel his recovering ankle. However, we’ve seen a GS release of the same colorway come in mid-cut form as well, so will these release? We know the Nike Kobe 8 “Graffiti” is indeed dropping in August, but a Kobe 8 Mid would be an exciting curveball to say the least. Check out Kobe below and stay tuned for updates!
