As Summer comes upon us, the onslaught of low-top sneakers are beginning to surface. With this weekends Easter pack release, the low-top trend is here to stay even with the rise of the Kobe 9 Elite high-tops. One player that has been rocking a good amount of Kobe Bryant’s new signature shoe is P.J. Tucker of the Phoenix Suns.
The Suns guard has been whipping out a bunch of new colors since the launch of the Kobe 9, including this amazing “Purple Gradient’ esque Kobe 9 Low EM. The engineered mesh upper is in purple with a snakeskin pattern done in black. You also got a 3M swoosh and shozoku logo on the tongue with a grey outsole, and yellow flywire to finish the look. There are no official reports on when this purple base colorway will release, however I wouldn’t count this out as as a PE exclusive just yet.
We also got an inside look at a black “Del Sol” colorway shown above. Reminiscient to the Kobe 4 and 5 Del Sols, we got a black base upper with yellow hits throughout and a clean white contrast finish. Just like the purple joints, this black “Del Sol” sneaker is still under wraps with official release.
As always keep it locked here on Kicksologists.com for the latest news on the Kobe 9.
