UPDATE: It all goes down tomorrow folks. If you can't celebrate with the Black Mamba, celebrate like the Black Mamba in a new pair of the Kobe 9 EM 'July 4th'. Dropping at select stockists including Foot Locker.
We've shown you the KD7, the Lebron 11 and its lower half all draped in Independence Day regalia for this upcoming 4th of July, but what would Nike's big three be without a Kobe thrown into the mix! Expressing its bold patriotism in a slightly more artistic method, we might go ahead and say the Kobe 9 is by far the most intriguing of the bunch. Have a look at that intrepid Flyknit infused upper. Straight trippin'. Finished with some metallic silver highlights for that American Eagle shine, forget the fireworks and opt for something more explosive - find them dropping at Nike retailers including Sneaker Politics June 26.
