It looks like the Nike Kobe 8 won't be the only Kobe-based shoe to release in a Year of the Horse edition. Today we have our first look at the NSW Lifestyle edition of the Kobe 9.

While the shoe's theme is the Year of the Horse, it seems to be inspired by both Yeezy and Galaxy colorways, thanks to a bright red lining, glow sole, and speckled midsole. The heel logo, and insole graphic, reveal that this is most definitely a YOH shoe, rather than one inspired by the past few years' most popular colorways.
