Nike Kobe 9 Em Xdr (Ch Pack)

UPDATE: Here's the deets. Tomorrow August 30, expect to find these ragin' red gems dropping at Nike.com. Get some!

Get out your Nike code book, people, we've got a Kobe loaded up with initials. This Kobe 9 has 'EM XDR CH' tacked onto the end of its title, and that means there's Engineered Mesh (EM) used on the upper instead of Flyknit, the sole is super tough because there's Extra Durable Rubber (XDR) at play and it's targeted at Asian audiences (we're guessing the CH stands for China). Nike's Kobe line has proven a huge seller in Asia, especially China, consistently outselling LeBron and KD sneaks, so this red, black and gold pair is a special treat for the loyal fans. The tongue design bears clear oriental influences, with a red and gold stitched pattern looking like it would line up nicely as a Chinese New Year release. Don't expect this to cross the Pacific or Indian oceans, but thanks to Hypebeast for the preview anyway.
