As we’ve heard, new Kobe 9 Elite Low colorways which are created from FlyKnit material may come to a pause thus making way for more Elite High colorways. The Kobe 9 EM Lows aren’t finished yet. This new vibrant colorway is called the “Dusty Cactus”. Usually, flashy colorways like these are only available in children’s size but this time the adults will be included.
The most eye-catching detail on these has to be the new “Dusty Cactus” color. The whole upper is covered in this new color. It isn’t exactly baby blue nor is it turquoise. Also hit with red and white accents, and the shoes scream “cool, mellow, and chill”. The red accents are found all around the shoes. They will line the tongue, lace eyelets, Kobe signature on the side, and the Lunarlon insole will also be red. The white outsole and Swoosh complete this colorway.
These will also feature a special tongue feature. Usually the Kobe 9s include a classic Sheath logo with the Kobe signature above. This pair sports a woven white square patch (which looks the Air Jordan 4s) with the Black Mamba in red, five gold stars, a small Kobe Sheath, and a black mamba snake. Don’t forget the five stars represent his NBA Championships.
Already on the Nike Release Date calendar, these are set to drop on Friday, October 3rd. The shoes will run for $175 USD retail at Nike Store. Many EM colorways don’t sell out, we expect these to follow those steps.
