Kobe Bryant is one of the most cultural athletes of his time. His love of art and history goes way beyond the sport of basketball and that certainly has been brought to life in his ninth signature sneaker line and with the releases so far such as the Masterpiece, Maestro and Perspective. Next up dropping this Saturday is the Kobe 9 Elite “Detail” inspired by the art of the Italian Renaissance period. Much like Italian Renaissance art, with Kobe ‘detail’ is everything. With a marbleized look on the upper and outsole, the neutral palette of white, grey and black the newest colorway of his Kobe 9 Elite is certainly a work of art. If you’re interested in copping a pair this Saturday check out our release details below.
