Nike and Kobe Bryant unveiled the Kobe 9 signature shoe today. For the first time since before the Zoom Kobe IV, Bryant’s signature shoe will not be a low top. In fact the Kobe 9 has a higher top than most basketball shoes. While Bryant’s previous low cut sneakers were inspired by soccer shoes, Kobe and Nike have taken inspiration from Manny Pacquiao and boxing shoes to create the new Kobe 9.

Check out some photos below:

The stitches on the back of the shoe represent the stitches in Kobe’s Achilles.

Here’s a photo of Kobe rocking the 9s in practice today.

The shoe will be available to the public on 2/8/14, and will retail for  $225.

What do you think, Laker Nation? Do you like the new style of Kobe’s kicks?



The final pre-season game was handed to the new Lakers, but despite a strong effort, the Kings had them beat in the last second.
