Nike Kobe 9 Em (Laser Crimson/Obsidian)
Europe is traditionally the mecca market for runners – even American-born Nike rewards the insatiable Euro lovers of 'trainers' with Air Max and Huarache exclusives. Meanwhile, America gets the goods when it comes to basketball, and they can't get enough of it. Are the tides turning though? Americans have reason to fear that Europe is stealing the B-Ball love now too! Just last week we saw some new Kobe 9 Lows get the Euro-exclusive treatment, and now there's a fresh Engineered Mesh Kobe 9 Low popping up in Europe with no sign of a US release. It features a straight crazy laser crimson upper in Engineered Mesh, with spots and stripes and zig zags making for some madness. Perhaps because overseas folks feared these would not make it to their shores, they have already sold out at End.
