Earlier this week, Phoenix Suns forward PJ Tucker had the sneaker community buzzing when he debuted a new Suns-inspired colorway of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite. It's mostly been referred to as a PE, but is the shoe actually making its way to retail?

In mid-April, the Kobe 9 Elite will release in Court Purple/White-Orange-Wolf Grey. Aside from the volt lining, Tucker's pair seems to match the description.

If this is indeed to the Kobe 9 Elite releasing on April 11, will you be picking up a pair?
