The Kobe 9 made quite a stir in the early hours of this morning when Nike revealed that a Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low with the full Flyknit treatment was on the way. 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. So instead of worrying about super limited HTM releases, you can just create your own colorways that have an even higher level of exclusivity.
As is often the case when a new model arrives on NIKEiD, the temptation to recreate classics is certainly there. And the Nike Kobe line definitely has plenty of memorable colorways from the previous eight signature entries that deserve an homage on this year’s Engineered Mesh Kobe 9 Low. But why stop there? Why not reach out to the greater Swoosh catalog for inspiration on this EM silhouette. We did just that, and the results are gathered for you here. Continue reading to see each of them and then head to NIKEiD today if you think you could do better with your own custom Nike Kobe 9 EM creation.
