From the ground up

Following a groundbreaking introduction utilizing a Flyknit construction for the first time on court, the Nike Kobe 9 has been remade for everyday wear. Stealthy yet aggressive, the Kobe 9 Mid EXT brings the popular performance model to the streets. The design embodies Kobe Bryant’s alter ago with a subtle, snakeskin-embossed leather upper. Paired with chrome accents along the midsole, reflective detailing brings a standout touch to an otherwise understated design. Tying the design together, the gum rubber outsole makes it ideal for off-court trekking. The Kobe 9 Mid EXT will be available beginning August 23 at Nike and select Nike Sportswear retailers worldwide.
