Things appear like they're almost getting back to normal in Laker land. For the first time this season, the Lakers have won back-to-back games, Swaggy P has returned from injury, and the Black Mamba keeps getting buckets while wearing some of the best PE's around the NBA.

Kobe led all scorers with 29 points last night, but for us at Sneaker Report that wasn't the most impressive part of his game. Kobe brought out an all-new pair of Laker themed Kobe 9 Elite's last night in Houston. The shoes feature a grey and gold Flyknit upper, with purple paint speckled accents and a white outsole. Earlier this week we got official release information for the Nike Kobe 10, but clearly the Mamba is still giving last year's model some much deserved shine.

Are these the best Kobe 9 Elites the Mamba has laced up this season? Check out the shoes in detail below and let us know what you think.
