It seems that we finally have our first look at the Kobe 9, the next signature shoe of Lakers’ superstar Kobe Bryant. It is a big departure from past Kobe models, as they were all featured as low cuts. This is a mid cut shoe that seems to address many complaints of ankle support in the past models. It is said that the shoe will feature a Flyknit type of material and feature lots of carbon fiber. Retail is expected to be $225. What do you guys think? Anyone thinking of copping?
