This Kobe 9 Gives The Name “Black Mamba” a Whole New Meaning

Nike Kobe 9 High EXT Snakeskin 1

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.

Nike Will Be Popping The “Cork” To Celebrate The 25th Anniversary Of The Nike Air Max 90 In 2015

Nike Air Max 90 Cork 1

Nike will be popping the cork to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Air Max 90 next year. Here we get a look at the anniversary edition of the model, which brings together “cork”  material on the upper, black accents and the popular Infrared colorway.

We all know that cork isn’t the most ideal material to place on a sneaker since it would deteriorate with moisture from your foot or constant bending with every step that we take. It will be interesting to see what Nike has in store for the upcoming Air Max 90, will they develop a more practical application by the time these hit stores? Maybe it will just be a “print” instead of actual cork material. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what Nike comes up with. There is currently no release date, but rumors have these dropping early 2015.

Teaser Of The Carmelo Anthony x Air Jordan 1

Carmelo Anthony x Air Jordan 1 1

The internet has been going bonkers over some photos that were released of a black & gold Air Jordan 1 with Carmelo Anthony branding on the tongue. It was recently revealed by Barney Wang, the source of the photo, that the pair is a Look-See sample. Don’t get your hopes down though because there may be a good chance that these actually hit retailers, but we would have to wait till some time in 2015 for that to happen.

This Air Jordan 1 sports a black base upper constructed of what seems like a combination of leather and suede. Beautiful gold blocking has been placed on the Swoosh, toebox, outsole, all over the heel and on the “Melo” branding on the tongue. We don’t even know if Melo himself has a pair of these beauties yet. There isn’t much other information at the moment so all we can really do is bask in the beauty of these pictures.

Let us know your thought on this Carmelo Anthony x Air Jordan 1 collab down below.

The Fellas Aren’t The Only Ones Getting The Nike AM Lunar1 “Chicago Marathon”

Nike-Air-Max-Lunar1-Chicago-Marathon-2

A few days ago we saw the mens version of the Nike Air Max Lunar1 “Chicago Marathon.” Now we get to see the woman’s rendition, which in my opinion is way better! Nike constructed this version with more vibrant colors like hyper punch, photo blue, and the all white mesh upper base standing above it all. Stay in first place with this new release!

The hyper punch pink makes up the laces and Nike swoosh while the photo blue makes up the inner lining. Hints of black contrasts the white base to finish the look. The WMNS Nike AM Lunar1 “Chicago Marathon” is available now along with the mens version at your local Nike retailers and on NDC right now.
