Nike's been back at work on the Kobe 9 Elite, unveiling fresh colorways leading up up to the start of the NBA season. Just last week we saw the "Legacy" Kobe 9 Elite, and it didn't take long for the Swoosh to release it's counterpart with the shoe dubbed at the Kobe 9 Elite "Strategy".

Jumping on the red trend, the Kobe 9 "Strategy" is right up there with one of the best looking so far in the latest signature line for the Mamba. A few months back, Nike dropped the Kobe 9 Low "University Red" with a glow in the dark Swoosh logo, and this seems to be a play on that shoe with some minor adjustments. The "Strategy" uses a mix of olive, black and red tones through the Flyknit upper, and Nike completed the look with a grey outsole. The shoes pay homage to Kobe's high IQ for the game, and continues the storyline behind colorways that Nike's been known for.

No official release date has surfaced, but rumors are they are scheduled to drop sometime in November so keep it locked for further information and details.
