We know how crazy people have been getting over the release of the Kobe 9 Elite series, and we also understand that there are a lot of peeps out there feeling a bit salty after missing out on a pair, but don't fret, Nike have you covered, with the introduction of the Kobe 9 EM. A low top version of the Kobe 9 Elites, these bad boys have the same sole and midsole but differ in the upper, as you can see by the pics above. Although not as intricate with the knit-work showcased in the 'Masterpiece', the Engineered Mesh provides a lightweight feel and ventilation, so your feet won't stink up the joint after a game. To make sure you don't miss out on your pair, check in with Nike as they are set to release on March 29. Make sure to keep an eye on the Sneaker Freaker site for more releases of the Kobe 9 EM.
