We all know that sneakers can still sell even if the associated player isn’t active, you need look no further than the rampant success of Air Jordan retros to determine that. A more contemporary model that’s giving it a go is the Nike Kobe 9 Elite, which unfortunately hasn’t seen too much on court time yet this season on account of Kobe’s injuries. But then again Kobe is as feisty a player that the league has ever seen, so we’re not totally counting out the possibility of more NBA sightings. Up next for the sneaker is this “Inspiration” colorway, which can be seen after the jump now and purchased a little early from yellownsxt on eBay.
