The “University Red” colorway is the latest colorway to join the Kobe 9 line, which has been nothing short of amazing since it’s debut earlier this year. The “University Red” colorway features a predominantly red flyknit upper that includes hints of mint accents on the heel, speckled laces, and speckled midsole, as well as a glow in the dark Nike Swoosh design. Black around the shoe on parts of the upper, outsole, and sock liner make the release clean, simple, and sophisticated. Because it is an Elite release, premium materials in addition to the Flyknit upper are used including tumbled leather on the heel and tongue and carbonfiber in the midsole. Flywire and Lunarlon – two of Nike’s premier technologies – are also incorporated into the release.

The Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low “University Red” drops this Saturday, September 13th at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker, and (starting at 8:00 a.m. EDT) for $ 200. Check out the Launch Locator to see which store near you will be carrying this release.
