Fans of Kobe were rather spoiled in 2014 – four different trims of the Nike Kobe 9 were made available, and that’s not counting the endless iterations one could visualize on NIKEiD. This latest update comes in Kobe 9 EM form, with the red, gold, and black composition paying tribute to China where Bryant is treated like royalty. Thankfully, these will not be exclusive to Asia, and are releasing next Saturday on Nike.com; check out the official photos below and let us know if these are among the best Kobe 9s to date.
