words // Brandon Richard

After bringing Flyknit to the court, Nike remakes the Kobe 9 for casual wear.

Inspired by Kobe’s alter-ego, the Kobe 9 Mid EXT features a subtle, snakeskin-embossed leather upper, paired with chrome accents along the midsole and reflective detailing. The look is tied together with a gum rubber outsole.

The Kobe 9 Mid EXT will be available for $225 next Saturday, August 23 at nike.com and select Nike Sportswear retailers worldwide.
