This November, the Air Jordan 9 “Kobe” is slated for a release at retail. It is the first-ever Air Jordan Retro in Lakers colors that references Kobe Bryant’s Player Exclusives during the famed “sneaker free agency” in the early part of the 2000s, and although the purple patent leather and gold detailing is supremely attractive, Jordan Brand could’ve made these even better had they kept one detail truly “OG”. The upcoming Air Jordan 9 “Kobe” features MJ’s 23 embroidered on the heel instead of number 8 that is seen in Kobe’s version. It’s nothing to get upset about, but this upcoming drop would’ve been that much better. Get a detailed look here and stay tuned for the release on November 19th, 2016.
