Here it is folks! A First look at the Nike Kobe 9 in it’s high top glory. The Nike Kobe 9 is by far one of the most re-invented sneakers in the entire Kobe line just by looking at the details, you can already tell that these have been built for basketball. On the uppers, you can see Engineered Mesh that constructs the entire shoe for the most part, while carbon fiber midsoles are added to compliment the amazing Icy soles. Another feature we’ve yet to see on on a Kobe is the high top cut that supports the ankle. Stay tuned for more details on the Nike Kobe 9 here on Modern Notoriety.
