Nike put the Kobe 9 Elite to rest once the basketball season ended last year, and focused most of their efforts on the EM and mid-top version. With the NBA season just around the corner, Nike's going back to where they started by giving us a detailed look at the upcoming Kobe 9 Elite "Victory".

Earlier this week, we got our first look at an upcoming red version of the Kobe 9 Elite to go along with the "Blue Brave". Nike extends the color pallet again with the Kobe 9 Elite "Victory" by using a mix of green and black through the fully Flyknit upper. The eye popping upper is complimented by a gold Swoosh logo, and white outsole which gives some balance to the overall look. Nike dubbed these the "Victory" due to Kobe's competitive nature, and willingness to put it all on the line when the game tips off. This is easily one of the most dope colorways of the Kobe 9 Elite so far, act accordingly because chances are it'll sell out.

The Kobe 9 Elite "Victory" drops October 28 at the Nike Store.

$225
