The Nike Kobe 9 EM “Deep Garnet” is headed to retailers tomorrow, December 13th, 2014. Kobe‘s about to hit a major milestone in surpassing Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list (he only needs 31 more points to do so this Friday) but the latest look turns the history books back to Mr. Bryant’s past. Featuring a unique ’96 on the tongue, this pair gets a Deep Garnet base to bay homage to Kobe’s time at Lower Marion before he entered the NBA Draft. It’s unclear what the Metallic Gold and Hyper Crimson serve as in this pair, but it creates a unique look when paired with matching Dynamic flywire under the engineered mesh. What do you think? As always, we have more detailed photos of the latest Kobe release after the break so stick with us and know that you can always pick up a pair early on eBay.
