We were just hit with two new colorways of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite last week that came directly out of left field. And while the “Victory” and “Brave Blue” colorways are sure a sight for sore eyes, nothing can prepare you for what we have for you today. This Kobe 9 takes the name “Black Mamba” to a whole new level.
This EXT edition of the Kobe 9 Elite sports a snakeskin textured leather upper instead of the traditional Flyknit that we are used to seeing on all of the Kobe 9 Highs. The look and texture of the snakeskin upper looks like it was taken straight off of an actual black mamba and stitched onto the upper, that’s how dope it is. The snake texture on the upper has been done up in shades of gold while hits of black on the midsole, Swoosh, laces, tongue and heel serve as the perfect contrast. Down below we can see the the shoe is finished off with a translucent gum outsole.
There is no release date yet for these venomous Kobes yet, but stay tuned with us here at Kicks on Fire for the latest news and release dates.
