The Nike Kobe 9 continues to stretch the imagination, taking its heightened innovation from the court to the community with a Mamba-centric lifestyle feel. The latest Kobe 9 EXT is meant to embody the aesthetic and attitude of Kobe Bryant’s alter ego–the venomous Black Mamba. Tonal from top to bottom, the upper is styled in Black KRM featuring compression molded scales that flow on the vamp and quarter panel, mimicking the smooth pattern found on the Black Mamba. The monotone design continues with premium Black leather running down the heel and collar. Completing the design, chrome inlays highlight a muted midsole to shine off the court. All Black. All Mamba. The Kobe 9 KRM EXT ‘Black Mamba’ drops Wednesday, December 31st at House of Hoops by Foot Locker stores and Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $ 275. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release.
Following a groundbreaking introduction, utilizing a Flyknit construction for the first time on-court, the Nike Kobe 9 has been remade for everyday wear. Built like the Black Mamba himself – stealthy yet aggressive – the Kobe 9 Mid Ext. brings the popular performance model to the streets. The design embodies Kobe Bryant’s alter-ago with a subtle, snakeskin-embossed leather upper. Paired with chrome accents along the midsole, reflective detailing brings a stand-out touch to an otherwise understated design. Tying the design together, the gum rubber outsole makes it ideal for off-court trekking, with a look as lethal as the Mamba’s venomous strike.
