This afternoon we got the first look at some previously unseen Nike Kobe 9s.
Instagram user realpromotagged, who has an unprecedented collection of Kobe player exclusives, threw photos of these two pairs on the 'Gram.
The first pair, which realpromotagged tells us is an inline shoe (so you can expect the possibility of getting your hands on them), has a mostly white knit upper. The mudguard is black, and there are deep purple details throughout. We'd like to point out that this is almost the exact breakdown of the iconic Air Jordan Concord 11s. Just saying.
The other pair, which seems to be a player exclusive, is made up mostly in cool grey with Kobe's Lakers colors throughout. Realpromotagged includes a note to Kobe himself, saying, "Come back kobebryant!!! Just to rock these!!!!!!!!!!" (All 13 exclamation points included by the original author). Realpromotagged obviously is wishing Bryant well for a speedy recovery, along with most other Lakers fans. It would be a shame if these PEs never got played in.
As we get more details on a possible release for either pair, we'll let you know. Until then, we'll be relying on realpromotagged for further info.
