New from Nike, it’s the Nike Kobe 9 High EXT QS “Snakeskin,” a premium quickstrike release of a Kobe Bryant signature sneaker. It’s also a little bit of a micro-throwback, since we probably all remember how popular snakeskin was only a year or so ago.
The Nike Kobe 9 High EXT QS “Snakeskin” combines its impressive snakeskin upper with waxed laces, a reflective midsole, a leather heel collar, a Kobe logo in chrome, and more, all on top of an outsole in an interesting translucent brown color. To say it’s a good-looking sneaker would be an understatement, since this is clearly a priority release for Nike and one with a luxury flavor all on its own.
You can see what I mean by taking a look at a few photos of the Nike Kobe 9 High EXT QS “Snakeskin” in the gallery down at the bottom of this page. And this being a Nike quickstrike release, you’ll need to act fast once it hits select retailers like this one for $250 on November 1st if you want to get a pair for yourself.
