Here are some detailed images of the Nike Kobe 9 EM “Philippines!” Featuring a textile print upper that pays homage to Filipino local barangay courts and some patterned laces that are out of this world, this Kobe 9 can definitely call itself the successor to the Kobe 8 “Philippines.” This shoe flaunts silver Kobe and Nike branding which will probably be 3M. The outsole on this release is all kinds of awesome with a sketch of some “tsinelas” (the Filipino word for sandals or slippers) behind a blue, icy outsole. The midsole rocks a blu/teal speckle and a red Kobe signature. I absolutely love the Kobe line because they do loads of colorways with laces that are specific to that shoe. No word on a U.S. release date but we will keep you up to date on this gorgeous shoe. As always, let us know what you think about this kick in the comments below.
