Sneakerheads have a lot to look forward to in 2015, and we’re excited to kick-off one of best sneaker seasons of the year with the special edition “Black History Month” collection from Nike. Over the next few weeks you’ll see some of your favorite Nike Basketball signature athletes rock special kicks-on-court celebrating the month and you’ll have your chance to cop all the kicks you’ll be seeing on court. One of the most anticipated shoes to drop will be the Kobe 9 Elite, which will drop next Monday, January 19th. If you’re interested in copping a pair please read our release details below.

In partnership with mall management, SELECT Foot Locker and House of Hoops by Foot Locker stores will implement a sweepstakes ticket procedure* in order to purchase the Nike Kobe 9 Elite ‘BHM’ (on sale 1/19 for $ 250). The sweepstakes tickets will be given out on Monday, January 12th and Tuesday, January 13th. If your ticket number is selected, you will be notified by phone on Wednesday, January 14th or Thursday, January 15th. These procedures are for SELECT STORES only. To find out which store near you will carry the shoe and if that store will implement the sweepstakes ticket procedure, please visit the Foot Locker Launch Locator.

The shoe will be available on Footlocker.com starting at 10:00 a.m. EST/7:00 a.m. PST on Monday, January 19th.
