To celebrate the innovative Kobe 9 Elite, Nike introduces a low version of the model created by Nike CEO Mark Parker, fragment design Founder Hiroshi Fujiwara and Nike Innovation Leader Tinker Hatfield. Produced in four distinct colorways, the sneaker combines Nike’s Lunarlon, Flywire and Flyknit technologies into one silhouette. Details take the form of reflective flecked laces, anodized HTM aglets, embossed snake scales and reflective Swoosh trademarks. Translucent windows in the outsole feature the remains of the Flyknit construction process, a reference to Flyknit technology’s sustainable properties, while the signature HTM logo finishes off the design. In addition to the release of the Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM collection, Nike Basketball is set to introduce new versions of the Kobe 9 Elite Low in the near future.
Look for the Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM collection to release exclusively at Nike Stadium Milano and Excelsior in Milan starting April 8.
