It's been over a month now since the official unveiling of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite, and until now, the only colorway we've seen has been the launch's "Masterpiece."  

Today though we have our first look at a new colorway, which, based on its tongue tag, should take on the nickname "Perspective." The Flyknit upper features shades of blue ranging from dark to light, and is accented by a neon green Swoosh, Kobe logo, and lining.

What are your thoughts on this version? Does it change your perception of the model now that you've seen it in a new colorway?
