Inspired by the basketball culture of parts of Southeast Asia, the Nike Kobe 9 Premium features a distinct blue and red color pattern that takes its cues from the brightly painted Barangay courts where the game is often played. The woven patterns on the upper represent those found on traditional handwoven rugs. Prominently displayed on the outsole, a Tsinelas graphic is encased inside the clear patterned bottom. Pick up a pair starting this Friday, May 23rd at House of Hoops by Foot Locker stores for $ 180. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release. This release will NOT be available on Footlocker.com.
