Gear Report: First Look At Nike Kobe 9
[new_royalslider id=”71″]

After completing his MVP season in 2008, Kobe Bryant and Nike designed the lightest and lowest basketball shoe possible. While Bryant and millions of fans have enjoyed the low-cut design through the years, the all-new Nike Kobe 9 has been redesigned. The shoe will now have a higher cut to support the five-time champion’s surgically repaired Achilles.

Here is a teaser of the Nike Kobe 9 that features engineered mesh into the upper and carbon fiber midsole to keep the sneaker light via KicksOnFire.com:
