Good news: Kobe Bryant is back in practice. On top of that he’s out of the Kobe 8 and into the Kobe 9 Elite. Before this week’s big media launch (We trust you saw our extensive coverage of the events) Bryant was seen at the Lakers facility wearing the Nike Kobe 9 Elite-the colorway in question being a little bit more muted than that “Masterpiece” look. Could this one be coming to retail as well, or is it just one of those pre-retail blackout versions we’ve seen so many times before? Stay tuned with Sneaker News to find out the answer to that and take a full look at Kobe Bryant wearing the Kobe 9 after the click.
