Sneakerheads may not matter, but influencers certainly do (maybe). Today Nike unveiled the newest version of their Kobe 9 Elite. Drawing inspiration from the pop art movement, Nike opted to use some of their brightest colors all on one pair of shoes.
The Flyknit upper is half Sport Turquoise and half Total Orange with a fully Volt throat. Climbing up from the mudguard to the ankle is a printed, rough graphic using all three colors. Black carbon fiber sits on a cool grey sole, with the wavy footprint underneath. To make it really clutch, there's a patch on the inside of the tongue that says, simply, "INFLUENCE."
Set to release June 21 for $225, it looks like this weekend is going to be a big one.
