With the "Masterpiece" colorway out of the way and the "Maestro" version dropping this week, the Nike Kobe 9 Elite has yet another release on the horizon. Previewed alongside two other new colorways for Kobe's ninth signature shoe, the "Inspiration" motif is scheduled to release on  March 1.

Sporting a Lakers-inspired look, these joints feature an electric mix of black, metallic silver, and anthracite with touches of gold spread throughout the Flywire support system. As fresh as they are, it will still be a while before we see Kobe hit the hardwood in them. Look for these to arrive at Nike, for $225, at the beginning of next month.
