UPDATE: These just landed over at End Clothing right now for anything that missed the weekend drop.
We ain't gonna front on ya, the Nike Kobe 9 looks best when its upper is full of Flyknit. These Engineered Mesh offerings feel like a wee step down, and not just in the ankle collar level, we want that special yarn! Still, there's been a stack of colour flavours delivered in the Low EM and this Hyper Cobalt is the latest. Dozens of spotted diamond shapes cloak the upper, with teal laces and lashing of gold on the Swoosh and Achilles sutures. The Kobes will be served sizzling this Saturday, July 26 at Nike retailers, including Sneakerhead, and Nike.com.
