The jury’s still out on where most stand on the Kobe 9 Elite by Nike Basketball. For everyone that loves them, there are at least one or two others who aren’t vibing with them. The divide can probably be split between those who want them to hoop in, those who look at shoes strictly from a casual perspective and those who love anything that challenges the normal fashion of what footwear should look like. We’ll know more come Saturday, February 8 once the ‘The Masterpiece’ version hits stores.
No matter which group people fall into, I think we can all agree that Nike Basketball’s use of the black mamba imagery here was pretty damn slick. For more info, hit up Nike Basketball.
