For those of you who have been to the site before I have posted an article about the pair of Kobe 9 elites that I own personally. They are the Lakers colorway and to refer back to it just go ahead and click on the "sneakers" tab in the organizer. That being said I'm going to keep this one short and just give you a first opinion. The color featured above is a deep blue or a "brave blue" as Nike has it. I like the color blue, usually not dark blues like this because they remind me of Duke Blue and I'm #PowderBlueGang till the death of me. Anyways they offer the flyknit upper just like the pair I've reviewed before and like the Kobe 9s you've probably seen or own yourselves. They have the Nike flywire technology for an optimal snug fit, and they obviously go up very high on the ankle for all you guys out there worried about your Achilles *cough cough*. In my opinion these are a really nice looking sneaker with a very clean look to them with a basic black/white midsole/outsole combo. This weekend's got a bunch of great releases and if you'r unsure about which one you want to go with, be sure to check out the previous thre updates and read up on the Foams, Futures and Billy Hoyles!! Good luck tomorrow morning and go get that sneakerbred!
