The first colorway for the low-top Nike Kobe 9 EM has been unveiled by Nike, as well as a firm release date that’s coming up in only a few days. It’s reminding some people of the earlier “Bruce Lee” Kobe V, albeit without the signature red claw marks inspired by Bruce Lee’s classic film Enter the Dragon.
Nevertheless, the new Nike Kobe 9 EM’s bright yellow Engineered Mesh upper will probably have you thinking of nunchucks and kung-fu chops, which is appropriate given Kobe Bryant’s famous interest in the subject. A Lunarlon outsole and accents in laser red round out the sneaker, which is a worthy edition to Kobe’s signature sneaker arsenal.
See if you agree by checking out a few photos of the Nike Kobe 9 EM in University Gold and Laser Crimson in the gallery up top. And that release date I mentioned at the beginning is this Saturday, March 29th, when the sneaker will have a price tag of $160.
