What better way to start off your Sunday morning than with some Kobe 9 news?

Images have hit the web of this Nike Kobe 9 EM sneaker in a "Gym Blue/Obsidian/Varsity Gold" colorway in what looks to be a departure from earlier versions of Kobe's low-top signature shoe. Unlike previous EM releases, this version does not feature a graphic on the Engineered Mesh upper, something that we saw on the "Dusty Cactus" and "China" editions. Instead the sneaker sticks to a basic colorway that people are comparing to the Golden State Warriors color scheme. However, something tells us that Kobe wouldn't want a Warriors-inspired shoe gracing his name.

Check out the latest Nike Kobe 9 EM colorways below and pick up a pair when they drop on November 21.
