The moment is almost here: The Kobe 9 Elite Low "Beethoven," the grey sneakers we've all been waiting for, have been announced on Nike's Launch Calendar. And they're set to release on Saturday, August 16, at 8 a.m. on

These are the sneakers we've wanted since Nike first announced the Milan-exclusive HTM Kobe 9 Low collection. We knew we, more than likely, wouldn't get our hands on those sneakers. But these grey/black joints are in the same vein as the previous release. They're inspired by Beethoven's timeless nature, and can be worn everyday. 

Get your money up, they'll run you $200.
