Our best look yet at this upcoming colorway of the Nike Kobe 9 EM.

Honoring Kobe's visit to China earlier this summer, where he hosts basketball camps in different cities. This 'China' edition comes in a university red, black and metallic gold colorway. Featuring a premium red-based engineered mesh upper with a unique graphic embroidered on the tongue and gold speckles on the midsole along with a gold Swoosh on the sides. Black accents and a white outsole finish this pair off.

The 'China' Nike Kobe 9 EM Premium hits nike.com as well as select Nike Basketball retailers on Saturday, August 30 in limited fashion.
