The Nike Kobe 9 “Philippines” might be a tough sneaker to decipher for those of you who aren’t of Filipino descent. The sneakers pay tribute to the rich basketball culture of that nation, and were created by Nike Basketball graphic designer Eric Goto, who has some Filipino blood running through his veins himself. The shoes reference the banig bed mat, tsinelas sandals, and plenty of more local items that you can see after the break thanks to this piece from Locker Room Legends. Take a look at them below and let us know in the comments if you’re a fan of this flavorful Kobe 9.
