The Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low "Hyper Grape" (a.k.a "Michael Jackson") releases this Saturday at Foot Locker and you might actually have a reasonable shot at these highly anticipated kicks. In a sneaker culture filled with bots, raffles, and Twitter RSVPS, these Flyknit-equipped Kobes will actually be launching via first-come, first-served at Foot Locker and House of Hoops stores.

Now, this doesn't exactly mean you'll be able to just walk into your local mall in the afternoon and scoop up a pair, but it definitely gives you a better chance instead of having to rely on just luck.

Find out if your local Foot Locker will be releasing these come Saturday, July 12, by checking Foot Locker's Launch Locator. You can also cop on FootLocker.com at 5 a.m. EST. Retail is $200.
