This weekend marks a new installment of the Kobe 9. The Kobe 9 was released in two styles: high, and low. The Kobe 9 high got its advent due to Kobe Bryant's 2012-2013 season ending achilles injury. In previous years Kobe has always been known for rocking low cut and light weight sneakers. The Kobe 9 low is no different. The Kobe 9 elite offers a predominantly mesh upper for great breathability. The Kobe 9 elite is also the very first basketball shoe to offer Nike's Flyknit technology. Nike Flyknit offers a sort of form-fit, along with great support. Nike Flywire is also a staple of the Kobe 9 elite. Flywire is a technology that expands and contracts with the movement of the foot. The Flyknit and Flywire technologies work together in a stylish and competitive fashion embodying Kobe Bryant's passion for winning. This weekend's hyper grape color way of the Kobe 9 would be a for sure cop for me, how about you?
