Up next in the Nike Kobe Black Mamba Pack is the Nike Kobe 9 which represent a new drastic change for the Kobe line. This was the first Kobe sneaker that utilized a Flyknit upper which seems to be the norm with many shoes these days. (See KD 9)

Nike decided to release the Kobe 9 as an Elite High version that features the crazy extended ankle that many people either love or hate. Other versions include an Elite Low (Flyknit) and an engineered mesh low option. The shoe features a full Anthracite color scheme and of course a Flyknit upper. At first most people were skeptical about the Kobe 9 but when many basketball players began wearing it on court and people actually tried them on their opinion completely changed.

Check out the official images above and look for the Nike Kobe 9 Black Mamba to release on April 11th for $200.

Author’s Take

This colorway reminds me a lot of the Detail colorway that featured a combination of light and dark grey throughout the upper. This Black Mamba colorway isn’t that bad but it’s also one that I think people may pass on.
