Here we have a Lakers team colorway of the Kobe 9. Releasing April 11th the “Lakers Home” colorway of the Kobe IX looks very similar to the PJ Tucker PE recently shown here on Kick On Court. The laces and inner lining get the Laser Orange treatment, and the two-tone look works well with FlyKnit as Court Purple takes on the lateral side of the Kobe IX, and Laser Orange covers the medial side. The Nike swoosh seems to be 3M which is always a nice addition and the wolf grey outsole compliments the black midsole well.
With the recent release of the Kobe 9 EM, i was afraid the Kobe 9 Elite would be kicked to the side, i glad to see that is not the case as I personally love the high top look of the Kobe 9 Elite. The Jordan XX8 is one of my favorite models to play basketball in and the Kobe 9 Elite is right up there. You can pick up this colorway of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite at Nike Basketball retailers on April 11th.
