Nike's keeping the heat coming with the Kobe 9 EM series this summer, most recently with a look at the upcoming "Hyper Cobalt" colorway debuting a few days back. The Swoosh is back once again with another blazing colorway, this time reminiscent of last year's Kobe 8 "Spark".

Featuring an array of orange tones throughout the upper, the Kobe 9 EM "Spark" is right up there with one of the most eye catching colorways we've seen so far. The graphic printed upper has been a go to for the Kobe 9 EM recently and Nike keeps up the trend once again, complimenting the orange upper with a speckled blue midsole and yellow outsole. We've already seen the upcoming LeBron 12, and KD VII set for next year, but nothing on the latest Kobe model, so expect Nike to keep rolling out fresh colorways for the Kobe 9, as it's possible they didn't get to do everything they planned for the shoe considering the Mamba's injury ridden season.

There's no release date set just yet as these are just the first images that have surfaced, but keep it locked for more information on the Kobe 9 EM "Spark" going forward.
