The Nike Kobe 9 Elite "Perspective" is headed to retail this Saturday, March 8, 2014, and Villa shot some excellent beauty shots to whet our palette.

Based on the Spanish Renaissance artist Picasso's Blue Period, the "Neon Turquiose/Volt" colorway is the brightest colorway of the Kobe 9 Elites thus far and like the artist, a reflection of Kobe's overall versatility. 

With all previous Kobe 9 Elites being instant sellouts, we don't expect these to be any different. Make sure you follow Villa and your local retailers to keep up to date on how they're handling this latest release.
