Three new colorways to the Nike Kobe 9 Elite surface telling a rich story of the Black Mamba’s past and present, all while paying homage to two historical figures. All three new colorways are set for a March release; The INSPIRATION (March 1), embodies Kobe’s connection with Los Angeles and his affiliation with the colors purple and gold ever since his 1996 rookie season; The PERSPECTIVE (March 8), inspired by Picasso’s Blue Period and the artist’s versatility that transcended beyond paintings and onto his sculptures; The DETAIL (March 22), Kobe’s game at times presents itself as art with much attention to detail, and there’s no better Italian Renaissance artist to pull from than Michelangelo. All three Nike KOBE 9 Elite colorways maintain the same groundbreaking features including Flyknit, Flywire and Lunarlon — making the sneaker incredibly light yet durable. Look for the INSPIRATION on-foot upon Kobe’s return to the court.
