Can we expect to see Mr. Bryant in the Kobe 9 EM once the season gets started?

He's been more prone to the Flyknit styles of his current signature shoe as of late, so it's possible that this build won't show up often on-feet for the man. That doesn't give you an excuse to ignore them though, and making sure you don't is this latest colorway. The shoes switch between gym blue, obsidian, and varsity gold in a combination that just misses the mark as far as a Lakers connection. They're already floating around overseas, but no sign of this Kobe 9 in the States just yet.
